§ Mr. Steen
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security when he hopes to conclude his inquiries into the error in calculation of family credit for Mr. Mike Rawlinson of Totnes, South Devon (Ref. YR 008417C) and the delay in vetting the claim; when payment, together with arrears will be made; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Jack
A revised maximum award of family credit of £54.15 a week is being issued today, including all the arrears due. Entitlement could not be recalculated until necessary further information regarding Mr. Rawlinson's employment had been received. I shall write to my hon. Friend with details of this case.
