Marsha de Cordova comments on ESA underpayment figures

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Disabled People, commenting on the ESA underpayment figures, said:

“The shambles at the heart of the DWP becomes more and more obvious every day.

“Disabled people have been short-changed and denied the social security they were entitled to. This mess is another example of how the Conservatives have created a hostile environment for sick and disabled people.

“The Government must ensure that disabled people who have been so unfairly treated are properly compensated. A Government that forces disabled people into debt and even makes some destitute is a disgrace.”
