To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 6 September 2018 to Question 171381 on Employment and Support Allowance, what estimate she has made of the cost of providing information on how many people flowed off Employment and Support Allowance whose date of death was at the same time, and who had a Work Capability Assessment decision of fit for work between March 2014 and February 2017.

The information requested is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost. However the Department does monitor requests we receive for statistics and consider whether we can produce and release analysis that will helpfully inform public debate. The Department is therefore looking at this with a view to providing statistics on this issue in the future.
