Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what progress has been made towards meeting his Department's Public Service Agreement on reducing fraud and error in income support, jobseeker’s allowance and housing benefit. (200462)

The Department's estimates of our progress against Public Service Agreement 10 on reducing fraud and error in the benefits system are published in a series of reports called "Fraud and Error in the Benefit System". The most recent report, "Fraud and Error in the Benefit System October 2005 to September 2006" was published in December 2007; a copy has been placed in the Library.

The report can also be viewed on the Department's website at:
