HC Deb 14 May 1987 vol 116 c356W
Mr. Clay

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, what plans he has for monitoring the impact of the Social Security Act 1986.

Mr. Major

As part of our standard procedures, in planning the implementation of any significant change to the social security system—including those introduced by the Social Security Act 1986—the Department now considers how the impact of the change can best be monitored and makes arrangements for the collection and analysis of the necessary information.
