Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will give details of the social security benefits available to carers, and what steps his Department is taking to publicise these benefits.

Mr. Scott

I refer the hon. Member to my reply to my the hon. Member for Ynys Môn (Mr. Jones) on 27 March 1991 at column448.

Mr. Nellist

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what is the number and proportion of people claiming unemployment benefit who were disqualified or disallowed for availability or voluntary unemployment reaons and, because they were not eligible for income support, received no benefit, for May 1989 and the latest available date.

Mr. Jack

Information on the numbers of unemployed claimants and the decisions of adjudication officers where the question of availability or voluntary unemployment arises, is in "Unemployment Benefit Statistics—Quarterly Analysis of Unemployed Claimants" and "Unemployment Benefit Statistics—Quarterly Analysis of Decisions of Adjudication Officers", copies of which are in the Library. Figures as to the number and proportion of people disqualified or disallowed for receiving unemployment benefit who were not entitled to income support are not available.
