Mr. Alton asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the withdrawal of supplementary benefits from Kevin Capper of Liverpool.

Decisions on claims for supplementary benefit are the responsibility of the independent adjudicating authorities, the supplementary benefit officer in the first instance. I am aware of the circumstances of Kevin Capper's case and will be writing to the hon. Member.
