Carer's Allowance

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when the level of the carer's allowance will next be reviewed. (281397)

[holding answer 19 June 2009]: I have been asked to reply.

The level of carer's allowance is reviewed annually in order to establish whether it has retained its value in relation to the general level of prices in Great Britain. Following the last review in 2008, the rate was increased from £50.55 to £53.10 a week from April 2009. The next such review will be conducted in the autumn.
