Pensions: Hampshire

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 24 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the take up rate for pension credit was in each constituency in (a) Hampshire, (b) Portsmouth and (c) Southampton in each of the last three years. (181057)

[holding answer 22 January 2008]: Estimates of eligibility and take-up are not available below the level of Great Britain. It is not therefore possible to say what the take-up rate for pension credit is in each constituency in Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton.

Latest estimates of take-up rates for pension credit in Great Britain were published in the “Income Related Benefits Estimates of Take-Up in 2005/06” report. A copy of this report is available in the Library.
