asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will ensure that the existence of the "Supplementary Benefits Handbook" is mentioned in the next edition of Form SB1, which is due to be published next November, and that a notice drawing attention to the handbook, and the tribunal's "Guide to Procedure", is printed and displayed in all social security waiting rooms.

I have arranged for the November 1980 edition of leaflet SB1 to mention the supplementary benefits handbook. It is already mentioned in leaflet FB2, "Which Benefit?"I am still considering the appropriate publicity for the handbook and the tribunal's "Guide to Procedure".
