Dear Pamela Stoneman,

 

Query regarding your request for information

 

There are some queries regarding your request for information submitted to
North East Derbyshire District Council (allocated reference 3458).  These
are as follows:

 

·         Please can you clarify your request regarding Q1 and Q2.  Q1 is
self-explanatory, however it then becomes complex due to Q2.  The total HB
paid will include that benefit paid to elderly claimants who are exempt
from the "bedroom tax". Do you require the total benefit paid or just that
paid to working age claimants who are possibly affected by the "bedroom
tax"?  Please confirm.  If you do require the latter then please note that
we do not have a split for the amount of benefit paid to working age and
elderly.

 

·         The same applies to Q2 -  do you require the total number of
social tenancy cases or just those potentially affected by the
introduction of the "bedroom tax"? Please confirm.  For information we do
have the split of claims from tenants of social housing between working
age and elderly.

 

As of today I have placed this enquiry on hold and therefore the ‘clock
has stopped’ on this enquiry.  It will reopen on receipt of your response
to the queries.  A response by 19.11.13 would be appreciated.

 

Regards,
