COUNCIL Tax AND HOUSING Benefit

afham made this Freedom of Information request to Newham Borough Council

Newham Borough Council did not have the information requested.

From: afham

23 December 2010

Dear Newham Borough Council,

I have some some queries to be answered urgently:

1. Does the council respect and follow human rights and family and
children Act?

2. Can the council ask for money at any time despite the person
saying that he does not have money and is not well? Documents have
been provided.

3. A family who is supposed to be getting help from the council and
is a person who is asylum seeker and cannot work... Despite being
disabled and following community care... Can the council harass
this person despite submitting an appeal against the council
decision?

4. Does the council follow the NRPF network rule set up by
Parliament?

5. Does the council make discrimination?

Thank you

Yours faithfully,

afham

Quote-marks This sounds a terrible situation. Newham should be aware of their obligations towards people who are classified as having No Recourse to Public Funds.

The borough of Islington operate an NRPF Network to encourage good practice. Wonder if Newham are members?
