    Why are HMRC involved? They were poor on delivering tax credits, had major IT, security & customer service issues and seem, to this day, unable to respond quickly & effectively to changes in their customers’ circumstances. The people who deliver Income Suport and Jobseeker’s Allowance should get the ‘contract’ as they are better equipped to respond to the needs of this difficult client base.
