HC Deb 27 January 1993 vol 217 c752W
Mr. McMaster

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what London weightings are applied to social security benefits.

Mr. Burt

The social security system provides a comprehensive set of national benefits. Regional variations are therefore not generally appropriate, except where benefits reflect actual expenditure, such as those offering help with housing costs. A Greater London extension is available in income support for people in nursing and residential care homes.
