HC Deb 12 March 1980 vol 980 cc598-9W
Mr. Brotherton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what account is made of the payment of grocery vouchers by the Iron and Steel Trades Confederation to pickets in assessing their entitlement to supplementary benefit during the current dispute in the steel industry.

Mr. Prentice

The value of such vouchers is taken into account in the same way as any other payments from a trade union.
