asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will provide details of the cash limits set for 1983–84.
§ Mr. Brittan

Yeo. My right hon. Friend the Financial Secretary replied on my behalf on 4 March, saying that we would take account of the society's views in considering the Budget measures. I should point out that to implement the society's recommendations in full would, on its own figures, increase social security expenditure by well over £2 billion.
