Luton Borough Council (Benefit Fraud Inspectorate Report)

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

On behalf of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the BFI inspection report on Luton borough council was published today. Copies will be placed in the Library of the House.

The BFI report details a range of strengths and weaknesses in the housing benefit service provided by the council and makes recommendations to improve the security and efficiency of benefit delivery.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, is considering the report and may ask the council for proposals in response to BFI's findings.
