HC Deb 10 November 1980 vol 992 cc75-6W
Mr. Cryer

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the number of persons unemployed in Keighley who receive neither unemployment nor supplementary benefit; and what percentage of those unemployed they account for.

Mrs. Chalker

At 14 August 1980, the latest date for which information is available, there were 500 claimants for unemployment benefit or unemployment credits who were receiving neither unemployment nor supplementary benefit in the area covered by the Keighley unemployment benefit office and the associated office in Skipton. This was 17 per cent. of the total of such claimants. The figure includes 300 claimants whose entitlement to unemployment benefit had not yet been determined.
