Select Committee on Work and Pensions Written Evidence

Memorandum submitted by Chris Ambrosino

  I work for the Consumer Credit Counselling Service, a debt advice charity working nationally in the UK. I have come across instances where clients have CSA payments being made through attachment to earnings orders which have been increased to high amounts to cover arrears that have built up. There appears to be no appeal process to this regardless of its affects upon the client and their household. I find this unbelievable, particularly in cases when the arrears have been built up due to a lengthy calculation process. I have taken advice on this subject and understand there are certain reviews underway and would like to give my support to these.
