§ 46. Mr. BATEY
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the continuance of the household means test by the new Regulations is contrary to the promise he gave last year to maintain the unity of family life; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent the breaking up of family life by the means test?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The promise to which the hon. Member refers was made with a full sense of responsibility, and, before approving the draft Regulations, the Government satisfied themselves that it had been completely observed.
§ Mr. ELLIS SMITH
Will the right hon. Gentleman take into consideration the definite promise made to the people of this country by the Lord President of the Council that in the event of the principle of the household means test not being removed he would resign?
