HC Deb 18 July 1984 vol 64 c262W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, further to the answer on 21 June, Official Report, column 238, about unclaimed benefits, if he will publish separate Scottish figures.

Mr. Newton

[pursuant to his reply, 2 July 1984, c. 139]: It is estimated that in 1981 the annual amount of unclaimed supplementary benefit in Scotland was about £50 million. I regret that reliable estimates cannot be made in respect of the other benefits.
