HC Deb 21 February 1983 vol 37 c357W
Mr. David Watkins

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will bring forward the date on which men and women will be treated equally in satisfying the full-time work condition attached to the payment of family income supplement.

Mr. Newton

No. It is intended to introduce arrangements from November 1983 to enable women to satisfy the full time work conditions for family income supplement on the same basis as men, and it is not practicable to make such arrangements sooner.
