Guest blog piece by Revd Paul Nicolson of Taxpayers Against Poverty

Rushanara Ali MP for Bethnal Green and Bow has lodged a complaint with the Parliamentary Ombudsmen for me on behalf of one of her constituents a "Mr Smith", his name has been changed. The details are on the TAP [Taxpayers Against Poverty] website.


This is a complaint about the unreasonable enforcement of fines by the Magistrates Court fines officers without consideration of Page 9 of the National Standards for Enforcement Agents (NSEA), covering vulnerable situations, or of a change of circumstances after the fine has been set and the regular payments agreed.
