Tax Credit Chaos highlighted by Dundee Liberal Democrats

Dundee's two Liberal Democrat Councillors, Helen Dick and Fraser Macpherson today (4th August 2005) highlighted the growing concern about the Labour Government's failure to tackle the administrative problems of the Tax Credit Scheme and the resultant overpayments being clawed back from families who are in no position to repay.

Cllr Dick highlighted a case recently where a constituent of hers was being expected to repay over £1000, in a situation where the family concerned had a low total income and could not afford the repayment amount.

Cllr Dick said, "I am pleased the issue of Tax Credits chaos was highlighted by the Liberal Democrats at Westminster earlier this week. Its an issue the Labour Government must address as the current situation is very concerning and hitting at low-income families."
