HC Deb 16 March 1939 vol 345 c629W
Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give the number of old age pensioners in receipt of public assistance in the county of Derby; and the number in receipt of such assistance in Ilkeston, Heanor, and Ripley for the year 1938?

Mr. Elliot

On the 1st January, 1939, there were 3,293 old age pensioners in the administrative county of Derby in receipt of poor relief. The information desired in the second part of the question is not available as the returns made to my Department by public assistance authorities do not contain separate figures for parts of an administrative county.
