HC Deb 16 January 1986 vol 89 c697W
Mr. Squire

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, following his reply of 25 July 1985 to the hon. Member for Hornchurch, Official Report, column 742, he is now in a position to clarify whether nondependent deductions made from the housing benefit of households with non-dependent income support claimants living with them will be abolished.

Mr. Newton

We are still considering the future arrangements for non-dependent contributions.
