HC Deb 20 May 1981 vol 5 c94W
Mr. Foster

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has made any estimate of the number of young people who will be affected as a result of the proposed change in the Department of Health and Social Security's regulations which will deny supplementary benefit to school leavers until the September of the year in which they leave school.

Mrs. Chalker

With a few exceptions, the new rules which defer entitlement to supplementary benefit until the end of the vacation following the term in which they leave school will apply to all school leavers.
