Social Security Benefits: Fraud

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what estimate his Department has made of the amount lost by his Department as a result of (a) benefit fraud and (b) administrative error in Torbay constituency in each of the last five years. (244539)

The information is not available in the format requested.

DWP Fraud and Error estimates, published in the Fraud and Error in the Benefit System series, provide fraud and error estimates at a national level. The estimates are derived from the examination of a sample of benefit payments. The sample sizes are too small to produce valid estimates below the national level. Estimates are therefore not available at constituency level.
