HC Deb 27 June 2002 vol 387 cc1057-8W
Mr. Willetts

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what(a) costs associated with moving in-work benefit administration from his Department to the Inland Revenue and (b) other costs his Department incurred in each year since 1999–2000 with regard to the working families tax credit. [62604]

Malcolm Wicks

The project costs to this Department associated with replacing family credit with working families tax credit in 1999 are estimated at £1.5 million for 1998–99 and 1.6 million for 1999–2000.

No figures are available for the on-going costs—information provided to customers about working families tax credit is part of the package of information given to them about the benefits of moving into work.
