I am writing to you as a disability campaigner, representing The Broken of Britain.
Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) is the benefit designed to help disabled people or people with a long term health condition who are unable to work or may need extra time and support to find work. However, the test used for the benefit is so tough that thousands of people are being turned away and denied the support they need.
The Government now plans to make this test even tougher. There are regulations before Parliament that would change the criteria used to decide who gets ESA and if these go through thousands more people will be denied the support they need - http://www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/news/latest-news/1336-one-very-last-chance-for-you-to-stop-the-harsh-new-esa-test
These changes are being put forward despite the fact that the second independent review of ESA is currently looking at the criteria used when assessing people for ESA and how these are working. Any changes to the test for ESA should wait until the second independent review reports
Please show your opposition to these regulations by supporting EDM 1651 or speaking against the regulations in the chamber.
