HC Deb 02 February 2000 vol 343 cc636-7W
Mr. Coaker

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what plans he has to use benefit sanctions to tackle the problem of neighbour nuisance. [107484]

Angela Eagle

We have made it clear that there is no unconditional right to benefits. Rights must be matched by responsibilities. We are looking at these issues across the board, but no announcements are imminent.
