Audits still shrouded in secrecy…

13th December 2018

Following my meeting with the Disability Minister, audits are still shrouded in secrecy as Ministers and IAS – who carry out assessments – contradict each other over the power of auditors.

Every section of the original report where my constituent scored points was reduced to zero by the ‘auditor’. Had my constituent’s report not been audited, he would have been entitled to the standard rate of the daily living component worth £57.30 per week.

The DWP appears to be directly tampering with the assessment reports of PIP claimants. Sadly, the Leader of the House did not think it is important enough to set time aside to discuss it.
