Child Benefit: Overpayments

Volume 503: debated on Monday 11 January 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate his Department has made of (a) the number and (b) the amount of child benefit overpayments caused by the failure of a claimant to notify the Child Benefit Office of a change of circumstances in (i) 2005-06, (ii) 2006-07, (iii) 2007-08 and (iv) 2008-09.

The information requested is not available, as HM Revenue and Customs’ systems do not capture the reasons for child benefit overpayments.
