Philip Davies – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Work and Pensions

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Philip Davies on 2016-03-24.

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 14 March 2016 to Question 27517, how many foreign nationals living in the UK have been prosecuted for a fraudulent child benefit claim for a child living in the EU.

The Information requested is not available. As DWP does not administer child benefit, we do not legally have any powers to investigate alleged fraudulent claims.
