HC Deb 11 May 1978 vol 949 cc581-2W
Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many men and women under the age of 45 years, whether single or living together without children, claimed social security benefit in the Weymouth area for more than two weeks during the summer of 1977.

Mr. Orme

I regret that this information is not available, but the hon. Member may like to know that in 1977 101 claims from single men between the ages of 18 and 45 were dealt with at Weymouth under special arrangements made for handling supplementary benefit claims from seasonal workers. These did not apply to single women or childless couples until this year.
