Child Tax Credit: Warrington

Volume 476: debated on Monday 19 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many families in Warrington, South constituency were in receipt of child tax credit in each year since the tax credit was introduced; and how much was paid in such credits in that area in each such year. (206314)

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 2003-04, 2004-05 and 2005-06 in each constituency, based on final family circumstances and incomes, are produced in Table 3 of the HMRC publications ‘Child and Working Tax Credits. Finalised Awards. Geographical Analysis’ for each relevant year. These are available on the HMRC website at:

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

The number of out-of-work families includes those who are receiving the equivalent level of support via income support and jobseekers allowance.

Information on the average annual entitlement for families in each constituency is also available in Table 3 of these publications.

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