HC Deb 23 January 1995 vol 253 cc81-2W
19. Mr. Jamieson

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what percentage of people receiving income support assistance with their mortgage interest payments are people with disabilities.

Mr. Roger Evans

Approximately 14 per cent. of claimants currently receiving income support mortgage interest payments are receiving the disability premium.

21. Mr. Lidington

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make a further statement on the work of his Department's Maxwell pensions unit.

Mr. Arbuthnot

The Maxwell pensions unit continues to provide substantial administrative support to the Maxwell pensioners trust and to work with all concerned to encourage the resolution of Maxwell pensions disputes. The unit will stay in business while it has useful work to do, although it clearly does not represent an infinite resource.
