HC Deb 24 November 1970 vol 807 c73W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when the special survey derived from the data of the 1968 Family Expenditure Survey is to be published.

Mr. Dean

My Department is carrying out experimental analyses of data collected in the Family Expenditure Survey. The aim is to produce broad estimates of the numbers and characteristics of families living at different levels relative to the supplementary benefit standard. This work is well advanced, but further checks are needed before the results can be considered for publication.
