Written answers (Question to Social)

As requested in your representation, the fuel allowance application for the person concerned will be reviewed. In this regard, a deciding officer has requested further information in order to reassess his eligibility for the fuel allowance. As soon as this information has been received, his entitlement to the fuel allowance will be reviewed and he will be notified directly of the outcome.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
