Tribunals Services: Employment Support Allowance

Volume 499: debated on Wednesday 11 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how much funding has been allocated to the Tribunals Service to process employment support allowance appeals in 2009-10; and how much has been spent for this purpose in that year. (293043)

In 2009-10, the Department for Work and Pensions has transferred £3,996,291 to the Tribunals Service to process appeals in relation to employment and support allowance.

DWP does not hold records of in year expenditure by the Tribunals Service, and this could be identified only at disproportionate cost.
