HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 c534W
Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what advantages he expects to accrue to to employers from the proposals for family credit set out in paragraph 4.50 of the Green Paper on social security.

Mr. Newton

More employees, or potential employees, for whom it is more clearly worthwhile to work rather than not to work; and fewer employees for whom extra effort produces a negative return.
