§ 7. Mr. Jim Murphy
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement about the impact of the Working Families Tax Credit in Scotland. 
§ Dr. Reid
The Working Families Tax Credit is available to families, either couples or lone parents, who have one or more children; work at least 16 hours a week; are resident in the UK and entitled to work here and have savings of £8,000 or less. We estimate that the WFTC could provide help to 130,000 families in Scotland and that the current take-up in Scotland is around 70,000 families.
§ 17. Mr. Worthington
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what reports he has received on the impact of the Working Families Tax Credit on the Scottish economy.
