HC Deb 05 June 1986 vol 98 c616W
Dr. Godman

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if child benefit will be regarded as income for the purpose of calculating family credit under the terms of the Social Security Bill.

Mr. Newton

The intention is that child benefit will be taken into account in setting the level of the child credit rates, and it will therefore not be counted as income in the calculation of family credit in individual cases.
