There surely aren't randomers with clipboards after passport control asking are you on the scratcher and people are just telling them?Their duties include conducting interviews with customers by trained investigators, auditing employers’ PRSI records, carrying out specialist investigations and joint enquiries and operations with other agencies such as Revenue and the gardai. They also include multi-agency checkpoints and checks at airports.
People presenting at check -in in poor quality clothing, state of inebriation, smell of cigarettes, slovenly, etc...How are social welfare finding out about these people? Do they have spies at the airport?
In theory yes but I'd be surprised if Customs/Passport control system communicates that readily with social welfare. I'm not sure if it would even be allowed to. Perhaps it is.Easy enough to do with people at the airport, surely - scan your passport, search the social welfare database. Could automate it without much trouble either
I'd say the DPC will be all over this shortly - they don't approve of this kind of thing at all...Li
