§ Mr. Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many people unemployed for more than 52 weeks are now claiming supplementary benefit from the Huddersfield office of his Department; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Boyson
At December 1983 there were 6,500 unemployed people receiving supplementary benefit in Huddersfield. I regret that reliable estimates are not available for the number of these who have been unemployed for more than 52 weeks.
