HC Deb 16 December 1980 vol 996 c77W
43. Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what has been the increase in the take-up of benefits in the Strathclyde region in the first six months of 1980–81 compared with the equivalent period in 1979–80.

Mrs. Chalker

I regret that we have no means of calculating what proportions of people living in the Strathclyde region who were entitled to social security benefits failed to claim them in the first six months of 1979–80 or 1980–81.
