HC Deb 08 April 1982 vol 21 c461W
Mr. Ernie Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now review the patients' travelling expenses scheme to ensure an increase in entitlement to assistance.

Mr. John MacKay

No. The scheme is designed to relieve hardship and the level of entitlement is kept under regular review in line with increase in supplementary benefit and family income supplement.
