§ Mr. Maples
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many(a) social security offices and (b) job centres have the October 2002 edition of leaflet BC1 in stock; and how many hospitals give the October 2002 edition of the leaflet BC1 to new parents. 
§ Mr. Browne
The October 2002 edition of leaflet BCI was superseded on 7 April 2003 by the current edition.
All social security offices, Jobcentres and Jobcentre Plus offices are notified of the production of new versions of leaflets on the Department's Electronic Reordering System. This notification advises offices to destroy old stocks and replace them with the new version of a leaflet.
The information requested on hospitals is not available. Those hospitals that have joined the Department's publicity register receive a catalogue of leaflets in April and an update in October enabling them to update their stocks of leaflets. Free copies of leaflets can also be ordered through the publicity register, or collected from our offices, Post Offices, Citizen's Advice Bureaux. Copies can also be printed from the Department's website.
