HC Deb 02 February 1971 vol 810 cc312-3W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services on how large a sample the special survey was based that was drawn from the Family Expenditure Survey of 1968; and when this special survey is now due to be published.

Mr. Dean

Just over 2,000 two-parent families where the father was in full-time work are in the sample. I expect to receive an appraisal of the experimental study on 1968 and 1969 data about the end of March and shall then consider publication.
