Mr. Dewar

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of households in Great Britain have a weekly income of less than £100.

Mr. Maples

It is estimated that in 1989 approximately 20 per cent. of households in Great Britain had a gross income below £100 per week, approximately two thirds of these were one-person households. This is the latest year for which information is available from the family expenditure survey.
