HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 c124W
Mr. William Price

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many towns have had their social security offices reduced to caller office status; and what has been the saving to the Exchequer.

Mr. Pentland

Since August 1966 local offices in 69 towns have become public enquiry offices and, of these, 45 are attended full time and 24 on one or more days during the week. With regard to the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave him on 18th June.—[Vol. 766, c.99–100.]
