§ Mr. Whitney
Of the total number of those in employment at September 1979 and September 1984, the 525W number in receipt of family income supplement (FIS) at those dates represent 0.3 per cent. and 0.8 per cent. respectively.
It should be noted that the numbers in employment include categories who would not be eligible for FIS, for example part-time workers and people without children. The numbers in these categories are not separately available. The numbers of those in employment also include separately husbands and wives where both are working, whereas the couple represent a single family unit for FIS purposes.
