asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance what were the numbers of weekly payments of benefit made from each of the offices of the National Assistance Board in Middlesex in October, 1961, as compared with October 1960.

I presume that the hon. Member is referring to weekly grants of National Assistance. At the dates given the numbers of such grants current in the administrative areas of the National Assistance Board situated wholly within the County of Middlesex were as shown in the table below. These areas do not cover the whole of the county: other small parts are served, along with parts of the counties of London and Hertfordshire, respectively, by offices in Hampstead and Barnet.
