HC Deb 28 July 1938 vol 338 c3296
58. Mr. Collindridge

asked the Minister of Health the number of persons who are old age pensioners in Barnsley and who are receiving public assistance; the aggregate amount such people received in 1937; and the comparative figures for 1936?

Mr. Elliot

On 1st January, 1938, the latest date for which figures are available, the number was 726. The corresponding figure on 1st January, 1936, was 638. As regards the second part of the question, the returns received in my Department do not show this figure separately.
