HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 c523W
Mr. Squire

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what provisions will be made in the proposed reform of social security for low-wage households expecting their first baby who will lose their current entitlement to maternity grant, free milk and vitamins; and whether any special arrangements are proposed to help ensure a health pregnancy and to meet the costs of a new baby.

Mr. Newton

Special arrangements will be considered under the social fund for the maternity expenses of low income families expecting their first child.
