asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects the Social Security Advisory Committee to publish its annual report.
The Social Security Advisory Committee is publishing its first annual report today, covering its work from its foundation in November 1980 through to the beginning of 1982. I am sure that hon. Members will welcome this in view of the hopes expressed during the passage of the Social Security Act 1980 that the committee would publish an account of its activities. I understand that copies have been placed in the Library.
