HC Deb 19 January 1989 vol 145 c257W
Mr. Frank Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the arrangements for diversion of maintenance orders for women receiving income support are still as described in paragraphs 13.20–22, "Supplementary Benefits Handbook 1984."

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The arrangements are generally the same. There is a slight change in that claimants are no longer invited to arrange for the court to pass their court order payments to the Department, rather than direct to them, where the order is paid with complete regularity.
