asked the Secretary of State for Wales what are the latest economic activity rates, by age, for males and females in each county.

The latest reliable information on economic activity rates by age and county in Wales relates to 1971 and is contained in the table below.made to the different courts serving the whole of the county of Mersey side, broken down into the different areas ; how many were granted by each court; how many were refused ; and how many were granted on condition that a contribution was made by the applicant.

I have been asked to reply.The numbers of applications for and refusals of legal aid for all criminal and care proceedings by petty sessional division are published annually in Criminal Statistics, England and Wales (table 25 of the volume for 1978, Cmnd. 7670). The information available centrally does not show separately the numbers of applications refused under section 29(3) of the Legal Aid Act 1974, which enables a court to refuse to make a legal aid order unless the person first makes a payment on account of any contribution towards costs he may be liable to make at the conclusion of the case.
