Q48. Mr. R. C. Mitchell

asked the Prime Minister which Government Department is responsible for collecting and collating information relating to the fuel costs of retirement pensioners and families on low incomes.

The Prime Minister

The Department of Employment has overall responsibility for the family expenditure survey which includes information of this kind. In addition, the Department of Health and Social Security has carried out similar ad hoc surveys relating solely to low income households.
