Welfare Tax Credits: EC Nationals

Volume 487: debated on Monday 9 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the amount of (a) child tax credit and (b) working tax credit paid to EU nationals in respect of family members resident in other EU member states in the last 12 months. (255297)

The information requested is not available for child tax credit. The working tax credit is not a family benefit within the scope of EC Regulation 1408/71 and it is therefore not payable in respect of a worker's family members resident in other EEA member states.
