HC Deb 02 May 1989 vol 152 c94W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what effect payments from the Hillsborough disaster fund will have on the level of benefits for bereaved families.

Mr. Scott

No payments have yet been made by the Hillsborough disaster fund and therefore it is not possible to say whether and how they might affect benefits. Officials have been in touch with the fund's administrators to advise them on the social security rules. The majority of social security benefits would not in any case be affected by any payment from the fund.
