§ Mrs. Beckett
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish the report of his Department's inspectorate on single payments for furniture completed in 1983 and now made available to the Social Security Advisory Committee, in view of the likely delay before the full report of that committee is available.
§ Mr. Newton
The report of the social security policy inspectorate's inquiry into single payments for furniture has not been finalised. We expect to receive the report shortly and we shall then take decisions about its publication.
