To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many people are in receipt of invalidity allowance in the Seaham and Peterlee areas; and what were the numbers of recipients in 1989–90, 1990–91 and 1991–92.

I understand from Mr. Michael Bichard, the chief executive of the Benefits Agency, that the information requested is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
