§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether any social security benefit has been or is being paid to Mr. Mohammed Amin and his family since his entry to the United Kingdom at London Airport on 24th May; in the event that benefit is being paid, what circumstances necessitated such action; what is the cost to public funds; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. O'Malley
I regret that this information cannot be given. It would be contrary to the Department's policy to disclose details of any claim to supplementary benefit without the consent of the claimant.
