§ 21. Ms Rosie Winterton
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what action he is taking to improve the take-up of the minimum income guarantee among pensioners. 
§ Mr. Rooker
We currently estimate that just over half a million people are missing out on their Minimum Income Guarantee. We have announced details of a take-up campaign which will identify pensioners who may be entitled, and encourage them to claim. Details are in the Vote Office.
