Volume 464: debated on Monday 8 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many cases of housing benefit fraud have been detected and resolved using the (a) Benefit Fraud Inspectorate, (b) Housing Benefit Matching Service, (c) remote access terminals and (d) Anti-Fraud Incentive Scheme. (154765)

The Benefit Fraud Inspectorate, Remote Access Terminals and the Anti-Fraud Incentive Scheme are not dedicated parts of the process of detection of individual cases of benefit fraud. Therefore the requested figures are not available.

Information from the Housing Benefit Matching Service is not available broken down separately into fraud and error.
