To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will place in the Library copies of all instructions and bulletins issued to staff since 1996 on the processing of applications from widowers for benefits following changes to the rules for such applications. (110075)

[holding answer 18 December 2006]: Current bulletins, together with guidance on the processing of applications from widowers, will be placed in the library by mid January 2007. Older instructions will take longer to collect and we will endeavour to place this in the Library by mid February 2007.
