submitting fraudulent tax credits claims totalling £9,472.

Steven McMaster, 35, from Cumbernauld, admitted making the claims during his

His partner, Kelly Ann Prior, 29, who worked for Morgan Stanley Bank in
Cumbernauld, pleaded guilty to tax fraud.
Sheriff John Morris deferred sentence until next month.
