Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Social Welfare Fraud Data
1129. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection further to Parliamentary Question No. 681 of 17 December 2019, if any of the 31 suspect cases that have been concluded with no issues with regard to identity have led to litigation and or legal proceedings in view of the fact no fraud was detected; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [2703/20]
Where my Department examines cases of suspected identify fraud and, following investigation, finds that there are no issues with regard to identity, no further action is taken.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
