    If that £150 is from a previous budgeting advance then you will need to pay it off before you can request another. However, there's no guarantee that they will agree to another.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
