MS Society campaigns to scrap the PIP 20 metre rule

16 April 2019

The PIP 20 metre rule is failing people with MS. And people are losing their independence as a result.

You will then be able to automatically send an email with a prepared message Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd MP, to tell her now is the time to scrap the rule.

Disability Rights UK supports this campaign. For many years now, we have opposed the introduction of the 20 metre rule.
