§ 83. Mr. Fernyhough
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance the number of persons in Jarrow and Hebburn who are in receipt of a retirement pension; and how many of them are receiving supplementation from the National Assistance Board.
§ Mr. Marples
I regret that the numbers of retirement pensioners are not available for localities. I am informed by the National Assistance Board that the number being supplemented is also not available because the towns of Jarrow and Hebburn are part of a much larger area covered by an office at South Shields.
