Two more victims of Centrelink’s debt crackdown have emerged, as the Opposition turns the screws on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over the government’s $4.5 billion benefits clawback. 

Grayndler MP Anthony Albanese held a press conference today (Friday) to highlight the fact that by the government’s own admission one in five of the notices that Human Services has sent out to recoup benefit overpayments have been wrong.
