【国会】杨莉明:千人被发现申报错误 必须将补贴退回

杨莉明表示,有0.5巴仙的成功申请者被发现在申请自雇人士收入补贴计划(Self-employed Persons Income Relief Scheme,简称SIRS)时有错误申报。为了公平起见,要求错误申报者将补贴退款。 人力部长杨莉明于周二(5日)国会时答复盛港集选区议员林志蔚,有关在过去三个月内为何将部分援助收回的质询。 杨莉明称,申请条件是根据他们所申报的就业收入和,以及目前所拥有的产业作出评估。审计也发现大部分申请者均符合资格,然而,杨莉明强调,一些成功申请者却在事后才被发现申报错误,目前他们已向这些申请者收回援助。 “我们将单独与其余申请者联系,让他们有充足时间退款”,她表示。杨莉明续指当局发现有人诱骗非自雇人士申请补贴,当局已经把相关案件移交给警方调查。 林志蔚追问是否因申请标准所误导 林志蔚紧接追问,有关申请成功者后出现“误报”原因,例如申请者申报错误的部分。 “若真如此,他们是否是因为被申请标准所误导,导致他们误以为自己符合申请资格?”并续指,是否有任何行动能减少这种“误报”。 不仅如此,林志蔚也替被要求还款的申请者提问,是否可分期付款。 杨莉明则对此表示不同看法,她指她所理解“误报”申请者应该是原是符合条件,享有补贴福利却没有收到援助的人。 “事实上,我们在国会中所讨论的是,他们本是不符合条件者,却因申报收入的方式,让他们看似符合条件才会将补贴支付给他们。”…
