Mr. Bradley

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what are the estimated costs to his Department of the provisions in the Social Security (Incapacity for Work) Bill for the training linking rule; and how many people he estimates will use this rule to requalify(a) for incapacity benefit, (b) severe disablement allowance and (c) disability working allowance.

Mr. Scott

There is no reliable information on which to base an assessment of costs or the number of people who will take advantage of the training linking rule.
