asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will bring up to date the information given to the hon. Member for Manchester, Central, Official Report, 19 May 1980, columns 57–60, relating to child benefit.

There has been unavoidable delay, which I regret, in compiling these statistics but it is expected that the updated information will be available shortly. I shall then write to the hon. Member.

Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if, pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Perry Barr, Official Report, 5 February, column 233, he will publish any information regarding regional factors and family size of those who have opted for weekly payments of child benefit found during the special check referred to.

Mrs. Chalker

The information is not available in the form requested at present, but I will let the hon. Member know as soon as it becomes available.
