HC Deb 13 December 1954 vol 535 c92W
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.
