From top: Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection Regina Doherty; Then Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar at the launch of a new campaign urging the public to ‘blow the whistle in wellfare fraud’ on April 17, 2017
Welfare’s fraud numbers are implausible by any stretch of the imagination – the publication of dodgy figures the day before the PSC report is published is downright dishonest https://t.co/AblMDZiw1u

The ‘anti-fraud’ measures being trumpeted by the Department of Social Protection are primarily concerned with augmenting the Department’s capabilities in surveillance and punishment, not fraud reduction. Fraud reduction is the pretext, not the goal.
