§ Earl Russell
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have made any projection of the effects on the Social Security budget of improving work incentives by reducing marginal deduction rates; by the provision of childcare for single parents; by allowing the use of the Social Fund for deposits for accommodation; by allowing people offered jobs to draw on the Social Fund to acquire the tools of their trade; or by allowing help with the costs of actively seeking work.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Social Security (Lord Henley)
Reliable estimates cannot be made.
