To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many pensioners there are in North East Derbyshire; how many qualify for a free television licence; and how many get the minimum income guarantee. [103577]

The information is not available in the format requested. Such information as is available for the North East Derbyshire constituency shows that the number of people in receipt of state pension as at 30 September 2002 was 18,300. As at 31 May 2002 there were 7,700 people in receipt of a key benefit aged over 75 and therefore eligible for free TV licences. There were 3,100 people receiving the minimum income guarantee as at November 2002.
