Poverty: Cancer

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what research his Department has (a) undertaken and (b) evaluated on the number of cancer patients in poverty; and if he will make a statement. (245069)

The information requested is not available.

Our poverty statistics, published in the Households Below Average Income series, do not allow for a breakdown by illness type. Information is therefore not available for the number of cancer patients living in low income.
