'Spartacus' Report

Tagged as: cuts disability
Neighbourhoods:

A new report has been released exposing the government's spin over it's attempts to 'reform' (i.e. cut) Disability Living Allowance.

This report is a comprehensive presentation of the most relevant evidence available on Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and the proposals to replace it with a new benefit, Personal Independence Payments (PIP). It gathers together existing information and analyses over 500 group responses to the Government's Response to Disability Living Allowance reform.

Unsurprisingly, the report finds that the government's consultation on the issue was flawed and failed to meet the Government's code of practice for consultations. Also, the fact that 74% of respondents were opposed to the plans (incuding Boris Johnson for pity's sake) seems to have been brushed aside.
