HC Deb 16 January 1984 vol 52 c129W
Mr. Foulkes

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) how many pensioner households in Scotland will lose money due to the higher tapers, higher non-dependant deductions and higher minimum payment levels which were announced in the Chancellor's autumn statement on 18 November 1983;

(2) how many pensioners in Scotland will lose all entitlement to receive help with housing costs from April 1984 due to the higher tapers and other charges to be introduced.

Dr. Boyson

Estimates of pensioner households in Scotland which will lose benefit as a result of these changes are not available.
