§ Lord Hoyle
asked Her Majesty's Government: What is the number of state retirement pensioners; and how much is being paid in state retirement pensions in Warrington. [HL3575]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Work and Pensions (Baroness Hollis of Heigham):
The total number of people in Great Britain in receipt of a state pension as at 30 September 2003 was 10,398,740.
The total number of state pension recipients in the unitary authority of Warrington as at 30 September 2003 was 32,600.128WA
In 2003–04 the state pension expenditure in the unitary authority of Warrington is estimated to have been around £150 million.
- Caseload figures are rounded to the nearest hundred.
- Caseload figures are based on a five per cent sample from the pensions strategy computer system as at 30 September 2003, and are therefore subject to a degree of sampling variation.
- Figures for Warrington were calculated using caseload and average amount information from the pensions strategy computer system and calibrated to the estimated outturn for Great Britain for 2003–04.
