HC Deb 07 April 1938 vol 334 c543W
Mr. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Health whether he can state the number of persons, at the latest convenient date, in receipt of old age pensions who have received public assistance within the Swindon relief district; and how many of those persons are married but whose wives are not entitled to a pension?

Sir K. Wood

The returns made to my Department relate to counties and county boroughs as a whole and particulars for part of a county are not available. The number in the Administrative County of Wiltshire on the 1st January, 1938, the latest date for which information is available, was 1,193. I have no information concerning the last part of the question.
