HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 cc67-8W
44. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has an estimate conveniently available of the amount of benefit paid out to women who have been awarded alimony by court order, and who have failed to receive it.

Mr. Dean

It is difficult to make a reliable estimate on the evidence available. I am writing to the hon. Member.
