HC Deb 31 March 1981 vol 2 c58W
Q12. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Prime Minister if she is satisfied with the level of support given to families with children.

The Prime Minister

We have just announced increases in child benefit, one-parent benefit, family income supplement and other cash benefits, which will maintain their value and be of particular help to families with children. I am satisfied that, in the present difficult economic circumstances, the level of this support is fair and in line with what the country can afford.
