§ 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.
