    Tribunals are independent of DWP.  Felt a bit clinical but the result says otherwise!  Husband took notes while wife was answering questions, then after wife's questioning had the opportunity given to offer anything else that needed to be said.  I think she was put at ease by the tribunal members and so could share her case well.  I had things to say that didn't come out in her sharing and this helped build a better picture upon which to base their decision upon...Don't give up!  It pays to persevere if you're not happy with DWPs decisions regarding benefit assessments.
