Winter Fuel Payments: Stockton-on-Tees

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many pensioners received the £200 winter fuel payment in Stockton South constituency in the most recent period for which figures are available. (189330)

A £200 winter fuel payment is paid to a person aged 60 or over living at home (£100 if they share a home with someone else eligible for a winter fuel payment—this may be a spouse, partner, sibling or friend). £300 is payable to a person aged 80 or over (£150 if they share a home with another eligible person).

In winter 2006-07, a total of 17,790 people in the Stockton, South constituency received a winter fuel payment. We expect the number to be similar for this winter.
