HC Deb 27 June 1966 vol 730 c177W
Mr. Derek Page

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether the sample prepared for the forthcoming survey of low-income families is statistically adequate to give a picture of the regional distribution of the problem, in view of the evidence of low incomes in many parts of Norfolk.

Mr. Pentland

The sample will include families in all parts of Great Britain and will provide a picture of the position in the country as a whole. We are not setting out to measure the size of the problem in different areas which, of course, will vary with the general levels of earnings.
