HC Deb 20 November 2000 vol 357 c76W
Mr. Chope

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many of those who are entitled to repayment of post war credit have not yet claimed; what is the estimated value of the money owed; what measures the Government are taking to locate those whose claims are outstanding; and if he will make a statement.

Miss Melanie Johnson

The total sum of post war credits remaining unclaimed is estimated at £33 million. Figures for the numbers entitled to make a claim are not available. Substantial publicity campaigns have been mounted and approximately 95 per cent. of the original credit has already been repaid.
