HC Deb 22 October 1987 vol 120 c885W
Mr. Andrew Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what percentage of board and lodging claimants in Oxfordshire have their full lodging costs met by his Department; and, of those who do not have their expenses fully met, what is the average shortfall.

Mr. Portillo

I regret that the information requested is not collected by individual local offices and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
