I have been contacted by numerous constituents over the last few weeks who have either had their Tax Credits stopped or their applications rejected for absolutely no reason. This is not isolated to Edinburgh South but is going on across the country.
I am pleased to say that due to mass public outrage and pressure from Labour colleagues in Parliament the Government have decided not to renew the Concentrix contract. Whilst this is good news I would like to see the Government go further and launch a full-scale enquiry into this shambles and issue fines to Concentrix in order to compensate those affected.
If you, or anyone you know, is experiencing Tax Credits issues, please get in touch ASAP and my team will take up your case.
