HC Deb 08 June 1992 vol 209 c52W
14. Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what plans he has to carry out a review of the scope for means testing of all universal benefits.

Mr. Lilley

On a number of occasions we have made clear our commitment to child benefit and retirement pension. We shall continue to monitor the effectiveness of the social security system, as we have done since introducing the major reforms of 1988.
