Birkenhead MP seeks answers after Wirral Council sends in the bailiffs 12,000 times in one year
Birkenhead MP Frank Field says residents are at risk of “falling even deeper into debt” by the use of bailiffs who are “squeezing them for everything they have”.
Figures from the Money Advice Trust shows the National Debtline has received 595 phone calls for help from Birkenhead over the last two years.
The number of debts passed to bailiffs was equivalent to 7.86% of properties in the area, ranking the council 94 out of 326 for local authority bailiff use in England and Wales.
