Mr. Ted Garrett
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will request the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys to conduct a review of its population figures for the North Tyneside borough council area for the years since 1983, in the light of discrepancies between the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys' figures and those calculated by other agencies; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Currie
Officials from the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys and North Tyneside borough council met last August to review the population figures. As a result of that review an adjustment has been agreed and will be incorporated into the mid-1987 population estimates for North Tyneside.
