HC Deb 18 December 1973 vol 866 c280W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give (a) the most recent figures of the numbers of recipients of supplementary benefits whose benefit is reduced because of the earnings of a dependent child, and (b) how many have had this benefit reduced by under 50p, 50p to 99p, £1 to £1.99, £2 to £2.99, £3 to £3.99, £4 to £4.99 and £5 or over.

Mr. Dean

I regret that the information is not available as the statistical records kept do not distinguish between the earnings of children and those of wives and other dependants.
