§ Mr. Nellist
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will obtain for his departmental library, a copy of the research undertaken by Sean Stitt of Newcastle polytechnic into the viability of income support; and if he will make a statement.
§ Miss Widdecombe
The Department received a copy of this last year. We are always interested in research which might bear upon the effectiveness of income support, although we would not accept the assumptions made in this report.
