asked the Minister of Health whether he will inform the House as to the number of persons in receipt of old age pensions in Rotherham; and the number of those who are in receipt of allowances from the public assistance committee?

I regret that the information asked for in the first part of the question is not available, as the records of old age pensioners are not kept on a territorial basis. On 1st January, 1939, there were 920 old age pensioners in Rotherham in receipt of out-relief.
