As Chief Executive of the Benefits Agency it is my responsibility to answer questions about relevant operational matters. I am therefore replying to your recent Parliamentary Question to the Secretary of State for Social Security asking how many senior citizens in the Durham city area collect their state retirement pensions from post offices and sub-post offices.
As at 02/05/93, approximately 10,650 customers in the Durham city area were receiving state retirement pensions from post offices and sub-post offices.
