For winter 2003–04 there were 16,885 people in Burnley who received a winter fuel payment and 240,640 people in Lancashire. We expect the numbers for winter 2004–05 to be similar.


1. Numbers are rounded to the nearest 5. 2. Local authorities and parliamentary constituencies are assigned by matching postcodes against the relevant ONS postcode directory.
