Gov Written Answer – #wco Money (Work & Pensions: Social Fund Crisis Loans)

19/03/2011

Webb, Steve raised an interesting point.

Subjects: Money; Regulation

To meet genuine need, and in addition to continually recycling from the £1.3 billion fund, this Government are committed to maintaining core funding of £178 million a year for the discretionary social fund scheme over the spending review period. ….(read more) …

Comment by #wco: So the government are state “we will implement a cap of three crisis loan awards for general living expenses in a rolling 12-month period.” – So when claims are messed up by the civil servants (and I’ve had personal experience of being destitute for over 8 weeks and having to have at least 3 crisis loans as a direct result of administration errors) then claimants may suffer more distress and homelessness as Housing Allowance is not paid while there is this situation.

THIS IS A VERY BAD SET OF NEW REGULATIONS !

Young, George raised an interesting point.

Subjects: Money; Democracy; Equality; Governance

On 3 July 2008, the House of Commons passed a resolution linking future annual increases in Members’ salary to the median pay increase received by a basket of 15 public sector work force groups in the preceding year. ….

Comment by #wco: I still think certain expenditure – office rents, electricity, gas, salaries etc should be paid centrally rather than to the MP .. this way deals can be done to get better prices for utilities etc. AND we can monitor the pay rates of these essentially public servants working for the MP’s ..

Gov Ministerial Statement – #wco Money (Work & Pensions: Fraud & Error (Benefits System))

21/10/2010

Duncan Smith, Iain raised an interesting point.

Subjects: Money; CMEC-CSA; Scrutiny

I am today publishing “Tackling fraud and error in the benefit and tax credits systems” a new joint DWP and HMRC strategy. This will be followed by a wider cross-government approach to tackling fraud, error and debt collection across the rest of the public sector being led by the Minister for the Cabinet Office. This strategy contains proposals to reduce significantly the level of fraud and error in the welfare system. It contains measures to prevent fraud and error from the outset of any claim; root out and correct mistakes where they do happen; deliver tough punishments for those who defraud the system; and deter those who would try to abuse the system in future. …

Comment by #wco:
“All financial information should be shared between all relevant agencies (both central and local) to eliminate errors and inconsistencies. In addition, this would provide the basis for correct assessment of universal benefit payments in the future.

We would strongly suggest the concept of “Circumstance Payments” that would replace all current benefits. The idea of “Income Based” or “Contribution Based” should disappear, along with “Passport Benefits”. Additional help (eg free prescriptions etc) would be granted based on the total household income rather than what type of benefit received.”
