Dwp Estates Office Closures

EDM number 1064 in 2016-17, proposed by Chris Stephens on 14/03/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Benefits policy, Central government and Unemployment.

That this House is deeply concerned at the impact of plans recently announced by the Department for Work and Pensions for widespread office closures; believes that the closure of one in 10 jobcentres will create difficulties for many isolated and vulnerable people in accessing services; notes with concern the uncertainties facing staff and the economic impacts on communities affected by office closures; and calls on the Government to suspend any closures to allow for completion of comprehensive impact assessments, widest possible consultation with stakeholders and staff and detailed consideration of alternatives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 53 MPs.
