Working Tax Credit: Foreigners

Volume 473: debated on Monday 17 March 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the number of foreign nationals who are not allowed recourse to public funds but who are receiving working tax credits. (194108)

The information requested is not available. Persons whose right to enter or remain in the UK restricts them from accessing public funds are not generally entitled to tax credits. This follows long standing Government policy.
