Sir Brandon Rhys Williams accordingly presented a Bill to provide that the weekly rate of child benefit for any child with effect from November 1980 shall be not less than £5·00; to provide that the rate of child benefit thereafter shall be adjusted not less than once per annum to correspond with changes in the index of retail prices; and to provide that the additional cost of the foregoing provisions shall be borne by the National Insurance Fund: And the same was read the First time; and ordered to be read a Second time upon Friday 9 May and to be printed [Bill 195].
