Elimination Of Backdated Claims For Social Security

EDM number 1241 in 1990-91, proposed by Graham Allen on 15/10/1991.

That this House deplores the Government's action during the recess to remove the right to claim backdated claims for social security caused by official error; notes that this will affect many thousands of elderly, disabled and other disadvantaged people who can no longer claim benefit arrears due to them; notes that the Statutory Instrument (S.I.,1991,No. 1950: Social Security (Adjudication) Amendment (No 2) Regulations 1991) permitting this was laid and came into operation during the summer recess thus denying any parliamentary scrutiny before it came into operation; and calls for the annulment of the Statutory Instrument and an end to the abuse of the Statutory Instrument procedure.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
