HC Deb 24 July 1985 vol 83 c577W
Mr. William Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in each of the last three years, how many persons have received from the Department of Health and Social Services payments to assist them in their removal expenses to Northern Ireland from (a) the rest of the United Kingdom and (b) the Irish Republic; and if he will give, if currently available, the largest sum, the smallest sum and the average sum paid for such a purpose in each year.

Mr. Chris Patten

I regret that the information is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
