HC Deb 19 December 1988 vol 144 c115W
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.
