1. Figures are consistent with Budget 2007 published expenditure and forecasts.
2. Percentage figures in Table (2) are rounded to one decimal place.
3. Unemployed benefit (UB) was replaced by Jobseekers Allowance which was introduced in October 1996.
4. Jobseekers Allowance (income based) figures include claimants in receipt of income-based Jobseekers Allowance who would also be entitled to the contributory element.
5. Jobseekers Allowance (contribution based) figures include claimants in receipt of income-based Jobseekers Allowance who would also be entitled to the contributory element. Only the amount of income-based award above the level of contribution-based award is included in this.
DWP Expenditure tables
Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many households in (a) Yorkshire and Humber and (b) City of York received (i) winter fuel payments and (ii) free television licences in the last year for which figures are available. 
Mr. Mike O'Brien: In winter 2006-07 753,890 households in the Yorkshire and Humber Government Office Region received a winter fuel payment and 14,830 households in the City of York constituency received the payment.
TV Licensing, who administer free television licences for people aged 75 or over as agents for the BBC, are not able to provide geographical breakdowns of the number of free licences issued. However, in winter 2006-07, the number of households with at least one person aged 75 or over receiving the winter fuel payment in the Yorkshire and Humber Government Office Region was 303,160 and there were 6,620 such households in the City of York constituency. Each of these households would be eligible for a free TV licence.
1. Figures rounded to the nearest 10.
2. Figures for 2006-07 refer only to the main payment run so they do not include the late payment run figures. We estimate that there are approximately 100,000 people in Great Britain paid in late payment runs (0.8 per cent. of all payments). Since most of the payment runs are to people who are not receiving another benefit from DWP and whose claims had not been received by the qualifying week, most are men aged 60 to 64.
3. Any residence found to have four or more occupants is not included in these figures as it is assumed to be a Residential Care or Nursing Home.
4. Government office regions and parliamentary constituencies are assigned by matching postcodes against the relevant ONS postcode directory.
