HC Deb 14 November 1985 vol 86 c280W
Mr. Clay

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he has any plans to alter the long-term scale needs allowances for supplementary benefit.

Mr. Newton

The recent Green Paper "Reform of Social Security" proposed a new structure of income support with client group premiums for particular groups of claimants instead of the present system, including the long-term rate.
