HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 c388W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the number of fraudulent claims for social security recorded in Wales in 1969; and what were the figures for Flintshire and for East Flintshire.

Mr. Dean

In 1969 the number of claims for social security benefits recorded in Wales which appeared to the Department to have been made with fraudulent intent was about 1,800. No separate figures are available for Flintshire and East Flintshire.
