39.

asked the Minister of Health whether he is now in a position to say when a White Paper on the subject of Assumption B of Sir William Beveridge's Report is to be issued?

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on 26th May to my hon. Friend the Member for London University (Sir E. Graham-Little).

In view of the misapprehensions arising from the reported statement of my right hon. Friend to the effect that his proposals are "in the discard," will he give an unequivocal assurance that the Government's acceptance of Assumption B in the Beveridge Report has not been abandoned?

Will there be an opportunity for the House to discuss Assumption B?
