I) Payments made to claimants living in private accommodation between
April 2016 and April 2017

819 claimants, payments are made fortnightly or 4 weekly

Ia) Amount in GBP of payments made to claimants living in private April
2016/ April 2017

£ 6,463,532

2017

1207 claimants, payments are made fortnightly, 4 weekly or monthly

IIb) Amount in GBP of payments made to claimants living in housing
association accommodation between April 2016/April 2017

£ 4,610,004

III) Total amount paid out in Housing Benefit for the year April
2016/April 2017

£ 19,003,697

And can I also have a full list of Landlords in Clackmannanshire please?

Our records will only be landlords where HB is being paid. There may be
landlords who do not accept tenants who are in receipt of benefits.
Therefore a full list is not available. I also believe that providing
names, may be outwith the scope of FOI, as that means the person could be
identified, Personalising information is exempt under clause 38(1)(b)

Yours sincerely,

Ann Dickson
