HC Deb 27 May 1966 vol 729 c185W
Mr. Lubbock

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why local authorities have been advised by his Department to tell applicants for rate rebates who are receiving allowances from the National Assistance Board that there is no point in pursuing their application.

Mr. MacColl

Because if a rebate were afforded to them their National Assistance allowance would generally be reduced.
