Deputy John Deasy asked the Minister for Social Protection the number of persons receiving one parent family payment by county in 2012.
Reply from Minister Joan Burton: There were 87,918 persons in receipt of a one-parent family payment at the 31st of December 2012. I attach a tabular statement detailing the breakdown of this number on a county by county basis.
Dáil Éireann allocates a certain amount of time on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during which Deputies may ask questions of Members of the Government relating to Public Affairs connected with their Departments, or on matters of administration for whch they are officially responsible. The Taoiseach answers questions on his own Department on Tuesdays/Wednesdays.
