    I wonder how much money this is going to cost? I thought the idea was to save money....

    On the Victoria piece this morning it said that PIP appeals are costing the taxpayer £1 million a week!  Yes, DLA to PIP is saving the taxpayer a fortune ;).

    I can't say I'm surprised.

    They wanted to cut 20% (I can't remember if that was 20% of the DLA bill or claimants) - sounds more lik they've spent 20% more at least.
