HC Deb 13 July 1994 vol 246 c642W
Ms Coffey

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many applications to the social fund for funeral expenses have been refused since SI 506, the social fund Maternity and Funeral Expenses (General) Amendment Regulations 1994 came into force; and how many refusals were on the grounds that the applicant is not considered a responsible person to meet the costs.

Mr. Scott

The information is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
