    I would like to know the meaning of this question as I am doing an important application form and it is a mandatory question.

    If you were, you'd know. You're not, by the way :)

    The New Deal is Tony Blair's unemployment policy, which was introduced back in, I believe, 1997.

    The UK Government introduced a scheme to get the unemployed back to work. It is known as the "New Deal". I believe that those who are on this scheme receive benefit payments from the Department of Work and Pensions.

    So the question means, "Are you in receipt of benefits from the Department of Work and Pensions, under the New Deal scheme?"
