How many (a) females and (b) males in the electoral, division of Sydney are in receipt of full or part (i) age, (ii) invalid, (iti) widow's, (iv) supporting mothers' (v) sickness and ( vi) unemployment benefits or pensions.

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


In addition to the figures shown above there were 370 wives of age and invalid pensioners in receipt of wife's pension in the Sydney electoral division at 4 October 1976.

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.
