Below is the text of Mr Major’s written Parliamentary Answer on Supplementary Benefit on 19th March 1986.

Mr. Frank Field Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will detail for the latest available date the number of (a) claimants and (b) dependants on supplementary benefit; and if this total could be broken down into the main claimant groups.

Mr. Major The latest date for which this information is available is December 1983, and I refer the hon. Member to table 3.1 of the “Annual Statistical Enquiry, 1983”, a copy of which is in the Library.
