Data are not available for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire therefore the budget area of Llanelli has been used as it covers the relevant constituency. However, data for Llanelli also cover areas outside of the constituency.
The data are provided in the following table:
|N umber of initial refusals for budgeting loans (BLs) and crisis loans (CLs) over the last five years|
|BLs initial refusals||6,940||5,880||7,010||7,570||7,370|
|CLs initial refusals||5,740||11,870||12,510||12,840||10,580|
|Notes: 1. The information provided is Management Information. Our preference is to answer all parliamentary questions using Official/National Statistics but in this case we only have Management Information available. It is not quality assured to the same extent as Official/National statistics and there are some issues with the data, for example they do not include applications which were processed clerically and have not yet been entered on to the Social Fund Computer System. 2. Figures are based on initial refusals and do not include changes made on review. 3. Figures rounded to the nearest 10.|
