asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why there has been no reply to the letter dated 18 February addressed to the Minister of State by the hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury about tax refunds.
I am sorry about the delay in replying to the hon. Member's letter. The point raised in it concerned the Department of Health and Social Security and I understand that my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Social Services will be sending him a reply today.
