HC Deb 11 June 1985 vol 80 c405W
58. Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he has any plans to increase the allowances for those participating in the job release scheme.

Mr. Alan Clark

The rates of job release allowances are reviewed each year and any increases become effective in April. I refer my hon. Friend to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Mr. Hawkins) on 15 March 1985 at columns316–17, giving details of the allowances to be paid from 8 April 1985.
