§ 13. Mr. Wareing
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what funds he is providing to publicise the existence of(a) family credit and (b) the independent living fund.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
For family credit, the advertising budget is over £3 million in the current financial year. The allocation of funds for publicity for the independent living fund is a matter for the trustees of the fund. The Department will, of course, continue to give the trustees such technical and professional advice and assistance as they require.
