Bad books

What is becoming increasingly clear – if it wasn’t clear enough already – are the lax systems and incompetence of the Fees Office.

Many MPs I’ve spoken to have been asked for documents by Sir Thomas Legg which they say they provided when they submitted claims. The Fees Office seems to have lost a lot of paper.

In another case an MP has been asked to pay £1,300 after Sir Thomas found the Fees Office mistakenly paid her twice for a mortgage claim.

They did pay her twice, she notified them immediately at the time her records show, and they took the money back straight away.

But it hasn’t registered for some reason and now the Fees Office are actually fighting her case with Sir Thomas, admitting the whole thing is their balls up, to prevent her from having to pay again.
