I confirm that my department received an application for carer’s allowance from the person concerned on 26 March 2018.

Additional information was requested from the person concerned on 11 May 2018. Once the information is received the application will be processed and she will be notified directly of the outcome.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
