§ 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.
