asked the Secretary of State for the Social Services whether he has received the communication from the hon. Member for Newham, North-West about an individual, details of whom have been sent to him, who received almost £3,000 in social security benefits though refusing to get up to go to work and for whom his Department has purchased or supplied with money to purchase an alarm clock; and whether he will publish in the Official Report an answer to the various queries as contained in the Member's letter.

Yes. The hon. Member will receive a reply as soon as our inquiries have been completed. As the reply will give particulars of the individual concerned, it will be in confidence, and, therefore, unsuitable for publication.
