Helen Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many people in the Warrington, North constituency have transferred from unemployment related benefits to invalidity or incapacity benefit in the last(a) five years and (b) 12 months. [6661]

Mr. Denham

[holding answer 10 July 1997]: Modernising the Social Security system is a key priority of this Government. We are committed to a review with the objective of reducing poverty and welfare dependency and promoting work incentives. Support for sick and disabled people will form part of that review.

The information requested for the last five years is not available, and the information requested for the last 12 months could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
