HC Deb 23 February 1984 vol 54 c628W
Mr. Home Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many supplementary benefit claimants in Scotland have received single payments for draughtproofing and fuel debt, respectively.

Dr. Boyson

In the year to December 1982, about 50,000 single payments of supplementary benefit were made in Scotland for fuel bills. No reliable estimate can be made of the small number of payments given for draughtproofing materials.
