Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many complaints his Department and its agencies received claiming that a pension has been paid into a bank account other than the nominated one in each of the last five years. 
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many people registered on the
Workers Registration Scheme there have been in each London borough in each year since the new scheme was introduced in May 2004. 
The Home Office only records the regional distribution of workers from A8 countries when they first registered to the worker registration scheme. Data by local authority were published in August 2008 in concert with the Accession Monitoring Report (AMR) on the Local Government Analysis & Research (LGAR) website.
The following table shows the last published available data by local authority for the number of workers when they first registered to the worker registration scheme (WRS) in each London borough since the scheme was introduced.
|Local authority||May 2004to March 2006||April to December 2006||January to December 2007||January to June 2008|
1. 99 per cent. of approved nationwide applications currently have an accurate postcode. Applications where postcodes could not be matched to the Office of National Statistics database are excluded from this data-set.
2. Figures based on employers address and the date the application is approved, rather than the date on the application form as used in the Accession Monitoring Report.
3. Figures are rounded to nearest five.
4. Because of rounding, figures may not add up to total shown.
5. The table presents a gross (cumulative) figure for the number of workers applying to the WRS. The figures are not current, an individual who has registered to work and who leaves employment is not required to de-register, so some of those counted will have left the employment for which they registered and indeed some are likely to have left the UK.
