A Benefits and Work member has been told by the chair of the Commons Work and Pensions Committee that an enquiry into disability benefits assessments is likely before the summer break.
Our member contacted the chair of the committee, Stephen Timms, with concerns about the PIP assessments and the work capability assessment.
He has now heard back from Timms, who told him that the committee had undertaken a very informative evidence session on PIP and ESA assessments in March, which you can watch here.
Timms went on to say that he envisaged that, before the summer break, the committee will launch an enquiry on disability benefits assessments.
We’ll let you know if the enquiry does take place and we hope many Benefits and Work members will be willing to share their experiences with MPs.
