§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has received the report on single women with dependants and the attendance allowance from the National Council for the Single Woman and her Dependants; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir K. Joseph
I have received the Report and studied it. I have already told the National Council why I do not consider it practicable to adopt its suggestion for phasing the extension of the attendance allowance otherwise than by age groups.
