HC Deb 15 February 1989 vol 147 c231W
Mr. Greg Knight

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if, in order to prevent fraudulent claims, he will consider requiring all claimants for social security benefit to attend to collect it in person at least once a month, or to provide a doctor's note stating why such attendance is not possible.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

No. This is not considered to be an effective or efficient means of preventing fraudulent claims.
