HC Deb 30 November 1983 vol 49 c528W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many payments for urgent needs have been made in the years 1978 to 1982 inclusive; and under what provisions of the relevant regulations they have been made since November 1980.

Dr. Boyson

I regret that the information is not available. Data collected on the number of supplementary payments made do not separately identify those made under the urgent cases regulations.
