As the person concerned is in receipt of Disability Allowance, he may have an entitlement to the Household Benefits Package. An application form has been issued to the person concerned for completion.

On return, the person's eligibility for the Household Benefits Package will be examined and the person will be notified of the outcome.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
