HC Deb 22 February 1999 vol 326 c159W
Mr. Maclean

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what plans he has to investigate the level of social security fraud committed by asylum seekers. [71096]

Mr. Timms

Our estimates of fraud levels do not identify asylum seekers as a distinct group. However, we investigate fraud wherever it is alleged to occur, regardless of the category of the claimant involved.
