HC Deb 05 June 1990 vol 173 c567W
Mr. Patchett

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many people in Yorkshire are on less than half the average income; how many are below average incomes; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Gillian Shephard

The Government do not publish statistics on living standards disaggregated on a regional basis. However, a recent publication by the Social Services Select Committee contains results of an analysis carried out by the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Copies of the publication—"Households and Families Below Average Income: a Regional Analysis"—are available in the Library.
