To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make a statement indicating which of his anti-fraud targets he is likely(a) to meet and (b) not to meet by the end of the current financial year. [102963]

Mr. Rooker

As published in the Public Service Agreement, for the first time we have set a single outcome target to reduce fraud and error in the two major benefits, Income Support and Jobseeker' s Allowance, by 30 per cent. by March 2007, with at least a 10 per cent. reduction by March 2002.
