HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 c351W
Mr. Leadbitter

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many applications have been made for free telephones in the Hartlepool district up to the latest available date; how many have been granted; and what numbers of retired and disabled persons have been refused.

Mr. Alfred Morris

Information collected centrally is about services provided by social services authorities and I am unable to break this down in respect of non-metropolitan districts. My hon. Friend may, however, be able to obtain the information he seeks from the local authority concerned.
