§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many special fraud checks into social security abuse in selected localities have been carried out in the last 12 months; how many cases of fraud have been uncovered; in what percentage of suspicious cases fraud was established; and what were the major categories of fraud uncovered.
§ Mr. O'Malley
Arrangements recently set up to assemble information about special activities do not cover the period mentioned by the hon. Member, but I am making further inquiries and will write to him as soon as possible.
