Dan Rogerson: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what provision he has made for claimants to collect their benefit for the week commencing 24 December in the week commencing 17 December. 
Mr. Plaskitt: We have settled processes in place to advance payments for the Christmas and new year periods which have worked well for the last few years. Customers having their payments paid into bank accounts will be able to access their money from cash machines throughout the whole of the holiday period. Those customers using post office branches will be able to collect their cash earlier than normal when their post office branch is open.

(1) Workless benefits' data represent children dependent on a parent/guardian who is claiming one or more of incapacity benefit (IB), severe disablement allowance (SDA), jobseeker's allowance (JSA), income support (IS) or pension credit (PC).
(2) Disability benefits data represent children dependent on a parent/guardian who is claiming disability living allowance or attendance allowance. Information on these benefits is not available from this source prior to April 2006 as they were not required in the original specifications.
1. All data represent a single snapshot in time of claimants on the computer system, and will therefore exclude a very small number of cases that are held clerically. The data are produced once a year.
2. Geo-referencing tools, obtained from the Office of National Statistics, have been used to assign claimants to geographies.
3. Due to the introduction of child tax credits in April 2003, information on child dependents is not reliably completed on the benefit computer system, therefore data from child benefit records have been merged onto IS/JSA/IB/SDA/PC claims with the permission of HMRC. The total number of children on child benefit has been used as the denominator for the percentages given.
4. The data on workless benefits are only available from April 2004, and from April 2006 for disability benefits.
5. It is possible that there will be some overlap of the figures as children could be in families that are in receipt of both workless and disability benefits.
