Social Security Reviews
Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services
Mr Andrew Bowden (Brighton, Kemptown)
I fully accept the need for such reviews, but will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that it would be quite wrong if, to obtain some limited savings on administration by streamlining certain areas, he dovetailed various allowances into one level, which meant that those on the highest level no longer received them? Can he assure me that those who get the maximum amount will not be affected, as they are inevitably those who are in the greatest need?
