§ Miss Richardson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he intends to lay the regulations required under the Social Security Act.
§ Mrs. Chalker
My right hon. Friend intends to lay before Parliament around the middle of July those regulations to be made under the Supplementary Benefits Act 1976 as amended by the Social Security Act 1980 which affect the calculation of weekly supplementary benefit. Regulations dealing with single payments will be laid shortly thereafter.
