HC Deb 02 February 1981 vol 998 c32W
Mr. Ted Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether his departmental office at Barry has investigated the allegations of a constituent of the hon. Member for Darlington that her former husband, who is failing to contribute to the upkeep of their children, is working and also drawing supplementary benefit; and if so, if he will advise the hon. Member for Darlington of the outcome of the investigation.

Mr. Rossi

I have nothing to add to what was said in my letter to the hon. Member on 19 January and the letter from my right hon. Friend the Member for Daventry (Mr. Prentice), the former Minister for Social Security, to the hon. Member on 17 December 1980.
