HC Deb 11 March 1999 vol 327 c344W
Mr. Rendel

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what plans he has to introduce benefit sanctions for those claimants who break their probation or community service orders. [76084]

Angela Eagle

We are currently looking into the possibility of testing arrangements which would link benefit entitlement to compliance with community sentences so, for example, someone subject to a probation or community service order may lose benefit if they breach the conditions of the order.
