§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what errors were made in the calculation of social fund allocations to district offices for 1992–93; when they were discovered; what changes were made in consequence and when; how many districts have had their allocations reduced or increased; and if he will supply details of the changes to hon. Members whose constituencies are affected.
§ Mr. Scott
An error in the data on which social fund discretionary budget allocations were based was identified on 17 March 1992; figures on income support caseload for a small number of districts had been attributed to the wrong districts. A full list of the revised allocations made to all districts was placed in the Library on 21 May 1992.
§ Mr. Wareing
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what has been his Department's response to the Social Security Advisory Committee's report "The Social Fund—A New Structure".
