HC Deb 21 February 1977 vol 926 c429W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, further to the reply given to the hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Madden), Official Report, 22nd November 1976, c. 1000–4, whether it is possible to show how many families in each category were unemployed.

Mr. Orme

Information relating to the unemployed cannot be presented in the same form as that given to my hon. Friend the Member for Sowerby (Mr. Madden) on 22nd November because it would not be statistically valid.—[Vol. 919, c.1000–4.]
