HC Deb 15 December 1989 vol 163 c853W
Mr. Meacher

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what plans his Department has(a) nationally, (b) regionally and (c) at local office level to adjust the benefit service to respond to completion of the internal market in 1992.

Mr. Scott

I do not expect that the completion of the internal market in 1992 will require any changes to the benefit service provided by the Department.
