Written answers (Question to Social)

A letter has issued to the person concerned on 8th February 2021, confirming that she is not currently in receipt of a Social Welfare payment.

The circumstances surrounding the Jobseekers Allowance application of July 2020 is currently being examined by an officer of the Department who will contact the person concerned regarding this.

I trust this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
