The legislation is not yet law, and still needs to pass through the House of Lords, althoug it seems unlikely that it will be stoppped or that any significant amendments will be made.

gordon heres one of your answer's above there is not many people who know this ,i am ab out to appeal my situ regarding the group i have been put in i feel i should have gone for a medical and be in a support group but after all that has been said what is the point if like your answer says you cant see that it wont happen cheers Denn

The contribution based ESA cuts are another budget cut of course and have no policy objective other than to reduce the welfare bill. Such a cut might be justified had Contribution based ESA come from general taxation, but of course it comes from our contributions which is scandalous imo.

Just brick being kicked out of the foundations of the welfare state.

This is no country to be sick. disabled or poor in.
