Tip-offs September 26, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
The Department of Social Protection has received 11,689 such reports from members of the public from January to June 2016, compared with 7,092 in the same period last year. The majority were made through the department’s website.
We are told…
The figures show that 8,476 of the tip-offs were sent to the relevant departmental section for examination as clients were found to be in receipt of more than one payment. It was not possible to pursue a report in 3,213 cases due to a lack of information, the absence of any welfare claim or the fact that information supplied would not impact on any entitlement.
But curiously there’s no figure as to how many of these led to a ‘successful'(?) prosecution. Anyone know where the raw figures are?
