Question to the Department for Work and Pensions:
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to letters sent by district managers of Jobcentre Plus to hon. Members on 30 September 2014, how many such letters were sent; and what the estimated cost to his Department of sending those letters was.
Answered by Mark Harper
The information requested was not collated centrally by the Department. It was intended that all District Managers would write to their local Members of Parliament about Universal Credit national expansion, so that each hon. Member should have received a letter. Such letters should, as a matter of routine, be sent by second class post.
