§ Mr. Alfred Morris
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security when it is his intention to introduce a Bill to consolidate the Social Security Acts 1975 to 1991; and if he will make a statement.
§ Miss Widdecombe
The Law Commission has responsibility for the consolidation of Bills.
The consolidation of the Social Security Acts 1975 to 1991 is currently under active consideration and the Law Commission is, of course, consulting with this Department. At present, it is not possible to say with any certainty when a Bill will be introduced.
