The figures for England only are not available. The estimated levels of housing benefit fraud in Great Britain are as follows: (a) £250 million (1.2% of spend) in 2009-10, (b) £300 million (1.4% of spend) in 2010-11 and (c) £350 million (1.5% of spend) in 2011-12.
The information is derived from the 2012-13 preliminary estimates of benefit fraud and error. Further information can be found by accessing the following link:
