£50 fine for errors on benefits forms - Telegraph

The Telegraph has this story "£50 fine for errors on forms" citing a "civil penalty" imposed on people who are not attempting to defraud the State but who are "negligent" in providing details of their claims.

Comment 02/17/2011 09:46 PM - concerns implications "those for whom English is not a first language, dyslexic people, those with mental health issues who get confused", makes you wonder just how much more they seem to be trying to make disabled people targets.

Comment 02/17/2011 05:16 PM - says it all: "will Government Departments have to pay claimants/taxpayers compensation of £50 when they get their calculations wrong. No, thought not."

Anyway off to my early appointment!
