To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what was the cost to his Department of the publication of leaflet SFL 10 from March 1990: and how many copies of the leaflet were produced.
The cost to the Department of the publication of leaflet SFL 10 ("Have you been refused a Social Fund Loan or Grant? A recent High Court decision may affect you") since March 1990 has been £5,900. Six hundred thousand copies have been produced.
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many 16 and 17-year-olds have received payments from the social fund for each quarter since April 1988 and for each standard region.
I regret that the information requested is not available and could be obtained only at a disproportionate cost.
