asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she has received a letter from the National Association of Widows on the subject of the overpayment of national insurance contributions by some widows; what reply she sent; and if she will make a statement.

A letter from the National Association of Widows was received on 18th June enclosing letters from 32 widows on this subject. No reply has yet been sent, beyond an acknowledgement, since each individual case needs to be examined. I would refer the hon. Member to my replies to the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Lambie) on 12th June.—[Vol. 893, c. 242–4.]
