HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 c405W
Mr. Alison

asked the Minister of Labour approximately how many households, consisting of man and wife or man alone or wife or widow or unmarried mother alone, earn on average in total less while at work than they would receive but for the wages-stop under National Assistance if unemployed, classified, so far as practicable, according to type of employment, regional location and number of children in family.

Mr. Marsh

This information is not available. As was stated in reply to Questions on 22nd February and 26th July information about family earnings is based on a very small sample which does not permit a detailed breakdown.
