Margaret Greenwood responds to government’s PIP announcement

Margaret Greenwood MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the government’s PIP announcement, said:

“This announcement is a drop in the ocean when compared to the suffering caused by the Conservatives’ cruel Personal Independence Payment and Work Capability Assessments.

“Labour will end both of these assessments in their entirety, replacing them with a framework that treats disabled people with dignity and respect.

“Labour will also end the pointless stress of reassessments for people with severe long-term conditions.”
