HC Deb 30 January 1987 vol 109 c440W
Mr. Frank Cook

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if married and cohabiting women who now qualify for invalid care allowance, and who qualify for back-dating of that allowance, will automatically be credited in arrears with class 1 national insurance credits to the date when their period of entitlement to invalid care allowance is commenced.

Mr. Major

Yes, subject to the usual provision that married women are not entitled to credits if they have chosen to pay reduced rate national insurance contributions.
