HC Deb 22 November 1991 vol 199 c321W
Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many claimants applied for grants or loans under the social fund during the financial year 1990–91 in each of the benefit offices in Wales; how many applications were turned down and for what reason; what was the average size of the grant, crisis loan or budgetary loan in the year; and if he will provide comparable figures for the first six months of 1991–92.

Mr. Scott

I understand from Mr. Michael Bichard, the Chief Executive of the Benefits Agency, that the information requested could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
