§ Mr. Fatchett
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will list for each Leeds social security office the funds allocated in 1988–89, and in 1989–90 for social fund(a) loans and (b) grants and the total expenditure in 1988–89 for (i) loans and (ii) grants.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
The information requested can be obtained from the Library.
However, social fund data for March 1989 are not yet available as a check of the figures has revealed some inaccuracies which have resulted from a new method of calculating the month end balances. The necessary adjustments are being made and the tables will be placed in the Library shortly.
In addition, the value of applications processed during December 1988 remains unavailable because of an earlier computer malfunction.
