Welfare Tax Credits: Warrington

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many families in Warrington are in receipt of each category of tax credit. (203169)

HMRC do not produce statistics separately for child tax credit and working tax credit, however estimates of the number of families with tax credits in 2005-06 in each local authority, based on final family circumstances and incomes, are published in “Child and Working Tax Credits. Finalised Awards 2005-06 Geographical Analysis”. This publication is available on the HMRC website at:

http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/personal-tax-credits/cwtc-geog-stats.htm

The information on the number of out-of-work families includes those who are receiving child support through income support and jobseeker’s allowance.

The same information for 2006-07 is due to be published on 20 May 2008.
