Government delays Welfare Reform Bill

15 July 2011

The Government has been forced to delay the 2nd Reading of the flagship Bill in the Lords due to peers’ concerns over the people affected.

DWP is suggesting other business has blocked progress but the surprise postponement till September from Tues will also give the Government time to lobby peers and answer the queries raised in DA’s legal challenge.

    Let’s lobby the lords now, how about a standard letter we can use and email directly to the house of lords……….to stop all further transfers of disabled people from IB to ESA until the full impact of the welfare reforms are known and all current IB claimants and carers are truly consulted.
