HC Deb 17 July 1986 vol 101 cc616-7W
Mr. Frank Field

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will estimate the number of claimants who move between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom in any one year giving the size of the flow each way and the numbers claiming the long-term rate of benefit.

Mr. Major

I regret that the information on which a reasonable estimate could be based is not available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
