Citizens Advice Scotland Report, Voices From The Frontline: Personal Independence Payments

EDM number 366 in 2014-15, proposed by Sheila Gilmore on 15/10/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Benefits administration and Sickness, disability and carers' benefits.

That this House welcomes the publication of Citizens Advice Scotland's report entitled Voices from the Frontline: Personal Independence Payments, which examines the roll-out of personal independence payment to replace disability living allowance; notes that claimants are having to wait an average of six months to receive a decision and in some cases over a year; further notes that such delays prevent people from receiving certain passported benefits, payment of some of which cannot be backdated; considers the cumulative impact of Government policy on disability benefits to have been damaging to many of the most vulnerable people in society; and urges the Department for Work and Pensions to take on board Citizens Advice Scotland's recommendations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
