On 28th March, Kevan joined representatives from the PCS union opposing the Government’s plan to close DWP offices.
Vinovium House in Bishop Auckland, where the child support system is administered, is one of the DWP offices under the threat of closure. The office is an important employer in County Durham.
Speaking to members of PCS during their lobby of MPs, Kevan said:
“Ministers must listen to those calling for a rethink and should seriously consider rescinding their threat to close Vinovium House and continue to administer the Child Support System from this centre.”
