Grants and Loans (Hansard, 16 November 1987)
HC Deb 16 November 1987 vol 122 cc439-40W
Mrs. Beckett

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the social fund grants and loans budgets for 1988–89 to individual loan offices as a percentage of each offices's expenditure on single payments and urgent need payments for 1985–86.

Mr. Scott

Information on the allocations for 1988–89 was contained in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Wells (Mr. Heathcoat-Amory) on 4 November at columns774–81. I will arrange for the information requested on expenditure in 1985–86 to be placed in the Library.

Mr. Nellist

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if the grants and loans budgets for 1988–89 for the Coventry, East and West offices of his Department are to be evenly divided for each month of the period;

(2) if he will give a monthly breakdown of grants distributed for each month of the last five years for each Coventry office of his Department.

Mr. Scott

A model profile of expected expenditure on a month by month basis will be drawn up at national level.

Local office managers may adjust the national profile to reflect particular local factors. The monthly profile of expenditure on the Coventry, East and West offices will be for the managers of those offices to decide. I will make the monthly breakdown of single payments expenditure for each month of the last five years for the Coventry offices available in the Library.
