§ Mr. Steen
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security why has his Department's overseas branch failed to pay the attendance allowance for Mr. Bowell junior of 23B La Vallesa, Shangrila, Calpe Alicante, Spain, formerly of 80 Blatchcombe road, Paignton, details of which were set out in his letter to the hon. Member for South Hams on 10 October; how much is owing; and when it will be paid.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
Arrears of attendance allowance for Mr. Bowell junior, amounting to £774.33 for the period 4 July 1988 to 14 December 1988, have been authorised for payment and will be issued to Mrs. Bowell this week. I very much regret the delay in issuing this payment.
