HC Deb 29 January 1996 vol 270 cc540-1W
Mr. Dowd

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many current national insurance numbers are allocated to people normally resident in Northern Ireland. [11201]

Mr. Moss

Responsibility for the subject in question has been delegated to the Social Security Agency under its chief executive, Mr. Alec Wylie. I have asked him to arrange for a reply to be given.

Letter from Alec Wylie to Mr. Jim Dowd, dated 24 January 1996: I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question relating to National Insurance numbers. I should explain that all National Insurance records for the United Kingdom are held centrally in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. The number of National Insurance numbers allocated to Northern Ireland or any other regions of the United Kingdom is not available. I am sorry that I cannot provide the information you require.
