HC Deb 22 March 1978 vol 946 cc572-3W
Mr. Bean

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will give the numbers of local authority and private unfurnished tenants receiving rent rebates and rent allowances, respectively, from April 1975 to the latest convenient date; and if he will express these figures as a percentage of those estimated to be eligible for each benefit.

Mr. Freeson

The available information is as follows:

a statement regarding the way in which Mr. David Duke has been able to elude police interception.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

A variation order was served on Mr. Duke on 13th March. I am not in a position to say how he avoided service before that date, but I am satisfied that the police made vigorous attempts to effect service and am glad to express my appreciation of their work.

Mr. Lee

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the cost to date, inclusive of police manpower time, to his Department arising from the scrutiny of the movements of Mr. David Duke since his arrival in the United Kingdom.

Dr. Summerskill

I regret that it would involve a disproportionate expense to obtain this information.
