HC Deb 09 March 1983 vol 38 c391W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what was the estimated number of single-parent families in Wales in 1971, 1976 and 1981, respectively.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

The numbers of single-parent families were 72,000 and 85,000 respectively in 1971 and 1981. It should be noted that only about a half of these families contained one or more dependent children.

No comparable data are available for 1976.
