Mr ROBERTON - The question of social service benefits and allowances, so far as this Parliament is concerned, is one that can be described and expressed in the term "' supplementary income ", and supplementary income only. That is typical of social services all over the free world. Whether or not that system is changed will largely be determined by this Parliament from time to time. The remainder of the honorable gentleman's question deals, of course, entirely with matters of policy, and matters of policy should not be included in questions addressed to Ministers.
