LITRG features in Real Story episode

Published on 15 November 2005

On Monday evening 14 November LITRG featured in BBC1's episode of Real Story with Fiona Bruce. The subject was a claimant whose overpayment nightmare turned out to have been wholly unnecessary: she was actually owed money by HMRC, not the other way around. We sense that there may be many more claimants whose entitlement has been wrongly calculated, and who are being made to pay back overpayments they cannot afford when all the while they have been underpaid.

The BBC website features an interview with LITRG technical director Robin Williamson. You can find this here. Also, visit our commentary on tax credits here.
