HC Deb 18 October 1982 vol 29 cc6-7W
Sir Brandon Rhys Williams

asked the Prime Minister if Her Majesty's Government will introduce legislation to amalgamate all Department of Health and Social Security offices dealing with supplementary benefit claimants with the housing and social work departments of local authorities.

The Prime Minister:

It would not be practicable to combine these three large and widely different functions within a single organisation.
