22. Mr. Grogan

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make a statement on the importance of benefits advice workers in maximising take-up of benefits among those who are entitled to them. [141823]

We recognise the importance of advice workers in encouraging take-up. As part of our MIG take-up campaign we are working closely with local authorities and voluntary organisations to ensure that pensioners get the help they need.
