HC Deb 20 May 1963 vol 678 cc1-2W
28. Mr. J. Robertson

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many persons in Scotland at present in receipt of sickness benefit under the National Insurance Acts are being refused National Assistance supplementation, or are having that supplementation reduced because of the application of the National Assistance (Determination of Need) Regulations, 1948.

Mrs. Thatcher

I regret that information relating to restriction of supplements to sickness benefit is obtained on an annual sample basis only for the country as a whole, and that separate figures for Scotland are not available.
