HC Deb 19 February 1998 vol 306 c858W
Mrs. Ballard

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many people in each Scottish health board area were removed from NHS dentists' registers as a result of missing a registration period in each year since 1992. [29369]

Mr. Galbraith

The information requested is listed in the table for financial years 1994–95 to 1996–97:

Payments of Disability Living Allowance are made where an adjudication officer has determined that entitlement exists and has awarded benefit at the rate and for the period appropriate to the claimant's circumstances. If an adjudication officer subsequently decides, whether as a result of the Benefit Integrity Project or not, that the person is no longer entitled to the amount of benefit in payment, there is no legal basis for leaving benefit payments unchanged.
