Increase Of Family Allowances

The following amendment stood upon the Order Paper: No. 13, in page 10, line 25, leave out Clause 9.

12 midnight.

The House will welcome the news that since we had such a full discussion earlier about family allowances and the family endowment scheme, I do not wish to make my arguments again on this amendment. Thanks to the efforts of my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington (Sir B. Rhys Williams) we were able to embarrass the Government considerably over their appalling record in this field. Therefore, at this late hour I shall not attempt to pursue the matter further but will try to get more satisfactory replies from the Government at a more convenient time and a more convenient date.
