HC Deb 05 June 1990 vol 173 cc555-6W
Mr. Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether people in receipt of the income support or housing benefit disability premium before receiving the new disability employment credit, immediately requalify for their original benefits, if they subsequently chose to leave paid employment.

Mr. Scott

The detailed arrangements for the disability employment credit are under consideration. Our proposals are set out in chapter 5 of "The Way Ahead. Benefits for Disabled People" which we published on 10 January 1990.
