National Insurance

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many national insurance cards were reported lost or stolen in the last 12 months; and how many valid national insurance cards there were in that period. (250501)

A breakdown of the number of national insurance (NI) cards reported lost or stolen in the last 12 months is not held. It is also not possible to state how many valid NI cards are in circulation; controls are in place but as NI cards are purely for notification they are not treated as secure items.
