I propose to take Questions Nos. 36 and 37 together.

One-Parent Family Payment (OFP) was introduced by the Government in 1997 and was administered by the Department’s office in Sligo. On 1 May 2005 a localisation project commenced to transfer administration of the scheme to the Social Welfare Local Offices throughout the country. Unfortunately due to the necessity for claims to be registered on a different computer system it was not possible to migrate payment history details to the current payment system and therefore the information requested by the Deputy is not available in my Department.
