I would be obliged if you could inform me how much money was paid out in the form of Income Support subsidies during the period from 1 January 2017 until 1 January 2018.
A "ballpark" figure will suffice.
The information you have requested is already published in the Social Security Department Minister’s report 2017.
The figure spent on income support for 2017 was just under £69 million. This information is found on page 46 of the report.
