What did Chapple and Boston exactly say on benefit fraud and mispayment

Penni Ha’penny You have probably cherry-picked figures out of context. At any one time possibly 10% of beneficiaries ARE working full-time – on temporary jobs for a week or a month – and it has to be declared and no benefit received for those weeks. Temporary work is all some people can get. About a third aren’t looking for work? If true, this could well be the number of people who hav , in a governmental sleight of hand, been shifted from Sickness and Invalid Benefits onto Jobseeker with Medical Exemption – the dole, but with no requirement to look for work. Because you can’t work. Ridiculous system.
