The information is in the following table. Information on households receiving a winter fuel payment is available only by constituency and local authority from winter 2002-03. Figures for winter 2006-07 are not yet available but we expect the numbers to be similar to those for winter 2005-06.
|Household payments made|
|Houghton and Washington, East constituency||Sunderland local authority|
| Notes: |
1. Figures rounded to the nearest 10.
2. Parliamentary constituencies and local authorities are assigned by matching postcodes against the relevant ONS postcode directory.
3. Any residence found to have four or more occupants aged 60 and over is not included in the household figures as it is assumed to be a care home.
