§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many claims on form SB20 had been received by his Department's offices nationally up to 31 December 1983; what proportion had been successful; and what proportion this represented of those entitled to claim.
§ Dr. Boyson
[pursuant to his reply, 16 January 1984, c. 118.]: Information is not available in the form requested. Records are kept only of the number of successful payments made following claims on forms SB20, which may be submitted by any member of the public. Up to 17 January 1984, 150 such payments were made and the amount refunded was £4,575.
