HC Deb 04 February 1985 vol 72 c451W
Mr. Frank Field

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will arrange for the design and distribution to local authorities of a poster advertising housing benefit.

Mr. Whitney

A poster advertising a leaflet "Who Pays Less Rent and Rates?" was distributed in March 1983 to all local authorities. In addition, local authorities receive subsidy for their expenses for operating the housing benefit scheme including the costs for publicity.
