HC Deb 18 May 1994 vol 243 c471W
Mr. Maginnis

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many successful prosecutions there have been in respect of the acquisition of public sector housing for the purpose of providing an accommodation address for fraudulent social security claims and on the illegal sub-letting of such property in each year since 1985.

Mr. Tim Smith

None, since neither of these activities constitutes a criminal offence.
