Petition the Minister for Disabled People to Recall the Public Consultation on DLA Reform

Have you supported this petition by The Broken Of Britain. Only one more week remaining.

We, the undersigned, urge the Minister for Disabled People to recall the Public Consultation on Disability Living Allowance (DLA) reform, and to cease work on reform of this benefit, due to serious flaws in the consultation paper. As such, the consultation questions are deeply skewed and any answers will be likely to support wholesale reform. This is both unfair and unwise, and will cause hardship for many disabled people.

    What surprise me is that many think that by responding to this insultation I can’t call it a consultation, they will contribute to saving DLA. WRONG! The insultation is about implementing PIP, not about saving DLA. That’s why the petition calls for it to be withdrawn and a new consultation ABOUT DLA, produced in its place.

    Judging by Maria Miller (the minister for disabled) attitude then DLA will be scrapped altogether and PIP will be implemented regardless of peoples opinions about it.

    This means that around 1 in 4 current claimants of DLA will lose ALL their entitlement.

    If you agree with this then simply do nothing, it will happen anyway.

    But if you believe like us that DLA is fit for purpose NOW and NEEDS NO REFORM sign the petition and help make a case for dropping this absurd idea that PIP will be compensated for by increased spending by Local Authorities.

    I have actually completed the consultation paper, though I haven’t sent it off yet. Most of my answers have been to say that DLA is currently “fit for purpose” and doesn’t need changing.

    How can any “Minister for the Disabled” support the idea that cutting hundreds of thousands of people’s lifelines is “good for the country”?

    Its an insane policy and it needs to be reversed NOW!
