HC Deb 24 October 1985 vol 84 c228W
Mrs. Beckett

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what special arrangements he has in mind for low-income families in the light of the proposals to limit the maternity grant to £75, and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Newton

We are considering the comments that have been made on the Green Paper's proposals on maternity payments and will announce our final conclusions in the forthcoming White Paper.
