asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the percentage of one-parent families in the metropolitan district of Kirklees; and how this compares with the national figure.

The number of lone-parent families in the metropolitan district of Kirklees as given in the 1971 Census tabulations is 914, which is 9·1 per cent. of all families. This is the same as the percentage for Great Britain as a whole.
