HC Deb 07 February 1985 vol 72 c680W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps he intends to take to ensure that claimants of unemployment or supplementary benefit do not receive overpayment of benefit allocations.

Mr. Whitney

Existing instructions to officials are designed to minimise the risk of overpayment of benefits. These instructions are kept under continuous review.
