asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what leaflets are currently available giving details of the entitlements of strikers to claim supplementary benefit on their own behalf and on behalf of their dependents; how many have been distributed since 1 January 1977; and where they are available.

Copies are available from my Department's local offices and the leaflets unit at Stanmore, and also from any special centre set up to deal with claims during a particular dispute. The number of copies released from central stocks since 1 January 1977 is 850,000.
