Poverty: Children

Volume 486: debated on Monday 12 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (1) what estimate he has made of the number of disabled children living below the poverty line in (a) Hemel Hempstead and (b) Hertfordshire in each of the last 10 years; (242671)

(2) how many and what percentage of children in each age group in (a) Hemel Hempstead and (b) Hertfordshire were living in absolute poverty in each year since 1997.

The information requested is not available.

Our child poverty statistics, published in the Households Below Average Income series, only allow a breakdown of the number of children in relative or absolute poverty at Government office region level. Information is therefore not available at parliamentary constituency or county level.
