Mr. Peter Morrison

I regret that the information is not available exactly in the form requested. The latest available information is set out in the table.

Burton on Trent and Uttoxeter are included in the figure for the Newcastle-under-Lyme area office. At 6 March, 445 people were being supported by the scheme.
