asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how much has been paid out of public funds in the form of social security benefits and PAYE refunds to the Glasgow dustmen and their families during the recent strike.

Up to the week ending 1st April, about £7,300 had been paid to the families of drivers involved in the Glasgow Corporation cleansing dispute. Nothing has been paid for the men themselves.In determining the amount of supplementary benefit payable in any particular case, account will have been taken of any PAYE refund available. The amount of such refunds paid to the men is, however, a matter for my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
