The DWP letter is enclosed as standard with their submission to the appeal, I don't know of a single case where the TS have paid any attention to it, by definition the panel must hold a hearing to make their Decision, frankly it is a waste of paper.

I had one of those as well Jacqui, but as Gordon has said, just ignore it, and get on with your appeal. I do agree its VERY stressful though, my Wife's health has certainly got worse since we have been going through this damn D.L.A. to P.I.P. change. Hope you get a Tribunal Hearing soon, we have been waiting since May, and got no idea when it will happen.....Good Luck.....

Hi Jacqui,

It's just standard practice and a formality in appeal submissions. Some appellants or their representatives will end their own appeal submission by requesting that the tribunal allow the appeal.

At the end of the day, it's just formally stating the obvious - nobody goes to appeal and ask the tribunal to make a decision in the other sides favour!

Best of luck with the appeal,
