§ Mr. Ashley
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, pursuant to the reply of 23 October 1981, if the figures for 1979 are now available which will show how many children were living in families below the supplementary benefit level, on supplementary benefit and with incomes up to 10 per cent., 20 per cent., and 40 per cent. above supplementary benefit level, classified by the employment status of the head of the family; and whether there were one or two parents.
§ Mrs Chalker
I am sorry that the analysis of the 1979 family expenditure survey data has been unavoidably delayed. I will let the right hon. Member have the information as soon as possible.
