HC Deb 20 March 1998 vol 308 c774W
Mr. Rendel

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if she will make a statement on the impact of millennium award grants made (i) as cash payments to the individual, paid(a) as a one-off grant, and (b) as a regular series of payments and (ii) in other ways, on (A) income support, (B) job seeker's allowance, (C) family credit, (D) housing benefit and (E) council tax benefit.

Mr. Denham

Millennium awards should have no impact on benefits because Award Partners are expected to ensure that awards are made in such a way that an individual's benefit is not affected.
