HC Deb 04 June 1980 vol 985 c768W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many council tenants in Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Nottingham, Leicester and Preston pay their rent direct through his Department; and how many other tenants in receipt of his Department's supplementary benefits are in rent arrears and do not have their rent paid direct.

Mrs. Chalker

I regret that this information could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
