Social Security Reviews
Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services
Mr Norman Fowler (Sutton Coldfield)
As to the first part of the hon. Gentleman's question, as I said, I am not making commitments on particular benefits. As to the second part, not just Treasury Ministers or officials, but officials and Ministers from other Departments and people from outside Government are attending. If the House contrasts that with what the Labour Government did in 1978 when they had a review of supplementary benefit carried out entirely by civil servants, it will agree that the way in which we have approached this matter is infinitely superior.
