HC Deb 12 December 1974 vol 883 c255W
Mrs. Bain

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion of households in Scotland where there is eligibility for family income supplement fails to take up such benefits.

Mr. William Ross

I understand from the Secretary of State for Social Services that information is not available about families eligible for family income supplement in Scotland. The Family Expenditure Survey which is used to produce estimates for Great Britain has insufficient sample numbers for a reliable separate estimate for Scotland.
