HC Deb 14 April 1972 vol 834 cc245-6W
Mr. Money

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the average national figures for aid given, during the last year for which these are available, by county, county borough and other local authorities per head to deaf persons.

Mr. Alison

This information is not available as the only figures collected which specifically relate to the deaf and hard of hearing are net expenditure per deaf person registered under Section 29 of the National Assistance Act. These relate to only part of an authority's services for deaf people.
