Mr. Bruce

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many claims for additionally exceptional severe weather allowance were made from individuals within Scotland during the period 31 December 1985 to 5 January 1986; and if he will provide a geographical breakdown by region.

Mr. Newton

Separate information is not collected on the number of claims. Information on payments awarded is not yet available, as I explained in my reply to the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Meacher) on 24 February at column470.
