§ Mr. Orme
The main disqualifying factor would be that the person or head of family was in full-time work. On the basis of information from the 1974 Family Expenditure Survey there were 130,000 such persons and families. Persons who, the information suggests, are fit for em-1168W ployment but are not seeking it are excluded from estimates of those with an unclaimed title to supplementary benefit. The numbers of such persons are not immediately available but I will write to my hon. Friend when they are to hand.
