§ 4. Mr. Paton
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if he will state the amounts paid by the National Assistance Board to retirement pensioners as supplementary payments for rents for each of the years 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1960, and the amounts so paid in the City of Norwich; and how many retirement pensioners were concerned in each of these years in both categories.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
I am informed by the National Assistance Board that for the reasons which my right hon. Friend has explained to the House from time to time the figures requested in this Question are not available either locally or on a national basis.
