HC Deb 01 February 1994 vol 236 c691W
Mrs. Golding

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many families were refused loans from the social fund because they were too poor to repay them or because they were considered of insufficient priority within the budget.

Mr. Scott

The information is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. General information on refused loan applications is published in my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State's annual report on the social fund for 1992–93, which is in the Library.
