MPs say Government response on PIP assessments is a terrible missed opportunity

18 December 2017

The Work and Pensions Committee comments on the Second Independent Review of the Personal Independence Payment Assessment, conducted by Paul Gray CB.

Commenting on the Government's response Frank Field MP, Chair of the Committee, said:

"The Department has responded to this Review with a series of promises to do almost nothing for claimants.  
  
We have heard literally thousands of accounts of the stress and suffering caused by the assessment process for PIP and ESA. We have heard of the externalised costs of this process, right through to the tribunal system that is left to overturn so many of the decisions that this process generates. But the human cost is immeasurable."
