HC Deb 21 March 1986 vol 94 c319W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will indicate the savings expected to be made from each of the relevant clauses in the Social Security Bill, both in the first year after implementation and in whatever year the saving reaches its maximum.

Mr. Newton

The financial effects of those clauses relating to benefits paid from the national insurance fund were explained in the "Report by the Government Acturary on the Financial Effects of the Bill on the National Insurance Fund" (Cmnd. 9711). On the financial effects of other clauses I would refer the hon. Member to what is said in the explanatory and financial memorandum to the Bill.
