HC Deb 05 May 1958 vol 587 c77W
50. Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many foreign visitors to Great Britain received National Assistance during 1957 on the grounds that, although they had registered for work which, however, they knew they could not accept because they held no British work permit, they claimed to be without means of support; and what was the total sum paid out.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

One, who, however, had worked without a permit. The cost was £13 16s. 0d.
