asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the latest take up of child benefit by one-child families.
I refer the right hon. Gentleman to my right hon. Friend's reply to the hon. Members for Braintree (Mr. Newton) and Greenwich, Woolwich, West (Mr. Bottomley) on 8th March.—[Vol. 927, c. 487.]
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will now answer the letters dated 14th February 1977 sent to him by the right hon. Member for Wanstead and Woodford about child benefit, in view of the fact that child benefit is due to start in four weeks.
My right hon. Friend replied on 9th March to one of the four letters about child benefit which the right hon. Gentleman sent to me on 14th February. Replies to the other three will be sent shortly.
