§ Mr. Donohoe
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security (1) on how many occasions in each year since 1987 payments have been triggered under the cold weather payments scheme in each parliamentary constituency in Scotland; 
(2) if he will list all the weather stations which are used by his Department within Scotland to assess whether payments are necessary under the cold weather payments scheme and the parliamentary constituencies associated with each of these. 
§ Mr. Roger Evans
Since 1991, the weather stations which are used for the cold weather payment scheme have been linked to post code areas to enable automatic payment. All weather stations and the areas they cover are listed in the schedules to the cold weather payment regulations, a copy of which is in the Library.
Information is not available in respect of the number of occasions since 1987 payments have been triggered in each parliamentary constituency. The information that is available is in the statistical holdings section of the Library.
