HC Deb 08 July 1985 vol 82 c356W
Mr. Hume

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what figures are available to indicate the number of households in receipt of family income supplement in the areas served by each of Northern Ireland's social security offices.

Mr. Chris Patten

The information is not available in the form requested, as family income supplement is administered centrally and not by social security Offices. The number of recipients on 3 June 1985 was 14,569.
