HC Deb 12 May 1980 vol 984 c359W
Mr. Field

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will update for 1978 table 34.30 in "Social Security Statistics, 1976 ".

Mrs. Chalker

I refer the hon. Member to my reply to him on 28 April.—[Vol. 983, c.398400.] I am not sure whether he appreciates that the second line of table 34.31 reproduces the material in table 34.30 for the relevant year; he may have been misled by the printing error in the first column of table 34.31 in " Social Security Statistics 1977 ", where 2,291 should read 2,991.
