§ Mr. Meacher
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will give full details of the expenditure implications for his Department of delaying full implementation of the community care proposals.
§ Mrs. Gillian Shephard
The public expenditure White Paper—Cm. 1014—contains the present planning totals for social security expenditure. These totals do not take account of the community care benefit changes now planned for 1993. Adjustments to these totals for any reason will be made in this year's public expenditure survey in the usual way.
