What is the inquiry about?

The Work and Pensions Select Committee are seeking your views. The Work and Pensions Select Committee looks into the policies and spending of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

The DWP is currently looking at how benefits assessments can be improved, and the Work and Pensions Committee will be making recommendations to them about how to do this. 

They would like to hear from disabled people who have been through an ESA or PIP assessment to inform these recommendations.

The Chair of the Committee, Stephen Timms MP, has explained more on his Twitter account.

To see further information about the survey, including a list of questions, visit this page on the UK Parliament's website.

    Section 1 q3 says enough about the failings in the system. Where is the option for neither? Lack of attention to detail, which is what most complaints are about from what I've read and certainly in my own experience. Pay attention to what the specialists say should be the main point they take from this exercise, they're happy applying the science when it suits🙈
