§ Mr. Marlow
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if, when a 520W sponsor defaults from maintaining a dependent immigrant, and supplementary benefit is payable, what powers are available to recover this supplementary benefit and to monitor the overall amounts involved.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The liability which the Social Security Bill will impose on the sponsor will be enforceable by civil proceedings if he does not resume maintenance voluntarily. We are considering the statistics needed on these cases.
