AnnotationMajor changes in the social security system legislated for in the Social Security Act 1986 were implemented in April 1988. The Social Services Committee examines how it is working; whether it is achieving the aims set for it by the Government; and whether the needs of those on benefit are adequately catered for. It considers the distributional effects of the reform, targeting of benefits (including the Social Fund and Income Support), the future direction of government policy, and the work of Social Security Appeals Tribunals (SSATs).
