HC Deb 21 July 1953 vol 46 c209W
Mr. Corbett

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what, at the latest convenient date, was the number of emergency benefit cases outstanding at (a) his Department's Erdington office and (b) all other of his Department's offices in Birmingham; and how long, at the present clearance rate, he estimates it will take to clear them.

Dr. Boyson

On 20 July 1983, at Erdington local office, there were 511 emergency payment records which had still to be linked with existing benefit documents for appropriate action. This task will be completed by 29 July. There are no such cases outstanding at the other Birmingham offices.
