asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many representations he has had concerning the uprating of child benefit next April and from whom.
I have received a small number of representations, including those from the right hon. Member for Brent, East (Mr. Freeson) and the Child Poverty Action Group.
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services by how much child benefit would have to be increased to maintain its value as at April 1979 if uprated in April 1980.
The answer depends on the movement of prices over the period.
