Sir: There is something deeply unsavoury about the benefit fraud hotline. I think it is the Government's job to correctly ascertain who is entitled to benefit and who isn't. If some builders, plumbers, and decorators are supposedly moonlighting while claiming benefit, surely it is the Benefits Agency which is at fault for not sufficiently investigating the claimants in the first place.
