HC Deb 13 June 1988 vol 135 c54W
Mr. Gordon Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish a set of figures for 1979 on the same basis as contained in "Households Below Average Income 1981–1985".

Mr. Portillo

I have no plans to publish a full set of "Households Below Average Income" figures for 1979. However, "Low Income Statistics—Report of a Technical Review" proposes that data for an earlier year (perhaps 1971) might be included in a future edition. Copies of this report are available in the Library.
