Chair's Comment

Frank Field MP, Chair of the Work and Pensions Committee, said:

"If Britain's vulnerable human underbelly is to be protected from future misery, it is important that the Select Committee begins the public process of learning what exactly has been happening during Concentrix’s stewardship. Once we have done so, we will then be inviting the Government to act on this information so that tax credit claimants in future will not be left penniless through no fault of their own."
