Figures for winter 2007-08 are not yet available. In winter 2006-07 we made winter fuel payments to 11,080 households in the Eltham constituency of which 2,920 went to households with someone aged 80 or over. We expect the numbers for winter 2007-08 to be similar. We also expect that similar numbers will receive the additional payment of £50 to households with someone aged 60 to 79 and 100 to households with someone aged 80 or over in winter 2008-09.
