    Hi aspiecharles

    The first thing to do if you are not happy with a decision made by a first tier tribunal is to ask for the written statement of reasons. You usually must do this within one month. It is only in a minority of cases that you can challenge the decision further and only where there is an error of law made by the tribunal. This almost certainly will require the help of a specialist adviser and i strongly suggest you contact a local advice service. The Scope helpline should be able to help point you in the right direction.

    Hi David. 
    Thank you for your advice. It was the DWP decision maker who had said in his response to the tribunal that he requested  my appeal be disallowed.  I have discovered since that this is the usual response by DWP and is nothing to worry about as it is almost always ignored by the courts.
