HC Deb 06 March 1995 vol 256 c1W
Mr. McMaster

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will detail the main differences in the application of social security policy in Northern Ireland and elsewhere in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Moss

Northern Ireland maintains parity with Great Britain on social security policy and legislation. The social security schemes and the conditions for receiving them are therefore the same as those which apply in Great Britain, except in respect of council tax benefit legislation.
