§ Mr. Boardman
asked the Minister of National Insurance how many persons in Leigh, Atherton and Tyldesley are in receipt of old age pensions; how many are in receipt of supplementary pensions; and how many applicants for supplementary pension were refused in 1949 and 1950.
§ Dr. Summerskill
At 19th December, 1950, in the area administered from the office of the National Assistance Board at Leigh, which includes the Borough of Leigh and the urban districts of Atherton and Tyldesley, 430 non-contributory old age pensions were in payment and 2,850 non-contributory and retirement pensioners were receiving regular weekly grants of national assistance. I regret that the other information asked for is not available.
