HL Deb 20 January 1992 vol 534 c15WA
Earl Russell

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have any plans to increase the social fund allocation for the Motherwell area.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Social Security (Lord Henley)

Allocations to social fund budgets are routinely kept under review. All districts including Motherwell have already received mid-year increases of at least 10 per cent. in their budgets for both loans and grants.
