Select Committee on Communities and Local Government Committee Minutes of Evidence


Examination of Witnesses (Question 60)

MR TIM ALLEN, MR GARETH DAVIES AND MR ANDREW BLAKE-HERBERT

27 FEBRUARY 2008

  Q60  Chair: That might indicate a certain amount of fraud rather than lots of children!

  Mr Blake-Herbert: Possibly, but it is not necessarily about the populations not keeping count. A lot of local authorities have got growth, according to the ONS, but they are saying it is not growing rapidly enough, but some authorities, like Slough, are actually saying the population is decreasing.

  Chair: Thank you very much.
