Employment And Support Allowance (Sanctions) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/2756)

EDM number 882 in 2012-13, proposed by Edward Miliband on 07/01/2013.
Categorised under the topic of Sickness, disability and carers' benefits.

That this House notes the Employment and Support Allowance (Sanctions) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/2756) laid in the House, which introduces a new sanctions regime for Employment and Support Allowance claimants, as an interim step towards the Universal Credit sanctions regime; and calls on the Government to ensure that the work related activity which ESA recipients will be required to undertake will be appropriate, given their health condition, and that benefit sanctions will only be applied where recipients have failed to comply with a request that was reasonable given their circumstances.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
