§ Rev. Ian Paisley
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many unemployed persons in Northern Ireland were receiving neither unemployment nor supplementary benefit at the latest available date; and how this compares with May 1979.
§ Mr. Adam Butler
This information is not available.
However, when the basis of the unemployment count was changed in October 1982 there were 5,400 registrants at employment offices who were not claiming either unemployment or supplementary benefit.
