HC Deb 11 May 1988 vol 133 cc175-6W
Mr. David Porter

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps he is taking to publicise successful prosecutions for social security fraud in each region; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Portillo

The Department has not normally sought publicity for successful prosecutions. Where inquiries are made by members of the press following their attendance at court, regional information officers assist on matters of fact.
