Incapacity Benefit

Asked for further information about the article in the Financial Times regarding incapacity benefit, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) repeated what the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman had said earlier that it was inaccurate. She said that the Government would set out a Five Year Plan for the DWP shortly.

  1. Yes, as a previous worker in benefits related field, there is immense abuse of the system though more so with Incapacity Benefit but also with other disability benefits. The system needs to be looked seriously because as a tax payer
    this is unacceptable to see the unlamenting abuse.
