Mr. Jon Owen Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what steps he proposes to take to encourage the taking in of lodgers(a) generally and (b) among those of or near retirement age.

Miss Widdecombe

We have no plans for such initiatives in the social security system. However, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has introduced proposals for fiscal incentives in the current Finance Bill.
