Labour will end the unfair assessment for PIP – Marsha de Cordova

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Disabled People, responding to the Personal Independence Payment statistics published today, said:

“These figures once again show the DWP’s shocking disregard for disabled claimants.

“There are still almost 1.5 million claimants left to review and they may be forced to wait years to receive what they are owed. That this Government is so slow to put right its unlawful discrimination against disabled people is disgraceful.

“Labour will end the unfair assessment for Personal Independence Payments and ensure that disabled people receive the support that they need.”
