Benefit Fraud Inspectorate Reports

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 29 June 2006

On behalf of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the BFI inspection reports on the following councils were published today: East Lothian Council, Ellesmere Port and Neston Borough Council, and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council. Copies have been placed in the Library.

The BFI reports detail a range of strengths and weaknesses in the housing benefit services provided by councils and make recommendations to improve the security and efficiency of benefit delivery.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is considering the reports and may ask the councils for proposals in response to BFI’s findings.
