HC Deb 16 January 1992 vol 201 c636W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether, in the light of Commissioner's decision No. CIS/371/1990, he will amend the Social Security (Hospital In-Patients) Regulations so that nursing home residents are not regarded as being maintained free of charge for the purposes of entitlement to income support.

Miss Widdecombe

We have no plans to do so.
