Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to make a Freedom of Information Request.

I would like to obtain the monetary value of Income Support, for the financial years 2014/15 and 2015/16, for the following sub-categories of the benefit:

(1) A single parent with one child aged under 11
(2) A couple with one child aged under 11
(3) A couple with two children aged under 11
(4) A couple with two children aged 13-16.

I am making this request because the following four categories of benefit recipients are set out in the DWP's Annual Abstract of Statistics up to 2012/14, and I thus have values for these benefits. However the DWP's "Benefit and Pension Rates" booklet for 2014/15, and its "Proposed Benefit and Pension Rates" for 2015/16, do not give the values of these benefits.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Stephens.
