To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many referrals through the National Benefit Fraud Hotline were made by hon. Members in each of the last five years; and how many investigations were launched as a result of such referrals.
All information received by the Department in relation to an allegation of benefit fraud, including that received through the National Benefit Fraud Hotline (NBFH) is treated as confidential. All referrals to the NBFH are therefore anonymised so the information requested is not kept by the Department.
