HC Deb 19 July 1991 vol 195 c293W
Mr. McGrady

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many people made applications for family credit in the constituency of South Down in each year since 1 April 1988 until 31 March 1991; and, of these, how many were approved and how many were refused.

Mr. Hanley

This is now a matter for the chief executive of the Social Security Agency, but I understand that the information is not available in the form requested and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
