HC Deb 03 July 1989 vol 156 c1
1. Mr. Raffan

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will review the area covered by the boundaries of his Department's office in Flint.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Social Security (Mr. Peter Lloyd)

A review of the boundaries in this area is planned for September.

Mr. Raffan

As part of the review, and to assist claimants from the more rural areas of my constituency, will my hon. Friend give serious consideration to bringing the communities of Brynford, Cilcain and Mannerch under the Department's Flint office, as they are much closer to Flint than they are to Rhyl, which is the office under which they now come? Will my hon. Friend similarly reassess the communities of Leeswood and Pontblyddyn, which now come under the Wrexham DSS office?

Mr. Lloyd

I am aware of my hon. Friend's concern about these matters because he has been in touch with me. I assure him that the review will take particular account of the views that he has expressed.
