HC Deb 25 March 1980 vol 981 c479W
29. Mr. Sheerman

asked the Secretary of State for Soc, al Services what plans he has to help the growing number of single-parent families.

Mrs. Chalker

Several measures to be introduced under the Social Security Bill now before Parliament will be of significant help to one-parent families dependent on supplementary benefit. We have already demonstrated our commitment to help all lone parents and we shall continue to do all we can, within the limits of available resources, for these and other disadvantaged groups.
