HC Deb 19 July 1984 vol 64 cc328-9W
Ms. Richardson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects the maternity benefits review to be completed and published.

Mr. Newton

The timetable for the review of financial provision for maternity was set out in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Mid-Kent (Mr. Rowe) on 18 May, at column303. No decision has been taken about publication, and we will consider this when officials have made their report to Ministers.
