(   1 ) How many citizens in the electoral division of Evans are estimated or known to be receiving (a) pensions and (b) other forms of social security benefits.

(2)   How many (a) females and (b) males in part ( 1 ) are receiving such social security benefits, and will the Minister provide a break up of each of the various categories of benefits received.

Mr Hunt - The Minister for Social Security has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

(   1 ) and (2) Estimated Number of Pensioners Beneficiaries in the Electoral Division of Evans as at 4 October 1 976:


In addition to the above figures, family allowances were paid to an estimated 14 350 families in respect of 27 130 children.

The number of pensioners and beneficiaries in electoral divisions is obtained by accumulating figures for individual postcode districts within the electoral divisions. Since some postcodes can be in two or more electoral divisions estimates only can be given.

A distribution of the following categories of beneficiaries by postcode districts is not available: Sickness and special benefit recipients, recipients of handicapped child's allowance and double orphan's pension, mothers who have received maternity allowance and persons who have received funeral benefit.
