HC Deb 07 March 1986 vol 93 c316W
Mr. Andrew Bowden

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish estimates of the number of pensioner households who do not take up housing benefit to which they are entitled.

Mr. Major

We expect to be able to publish estimates of take-up of housing benefit, based on the 1984 family expenditure survey, within the next two months.
