Yesterday, during DWP questions, Giles Watling said that he struggled with online applications, which caused some mirth on the Government Benches. May I pursue the question asked by Christine Jardine? I tabled some written questions about the number of requests for face-to-face assessment interviews. I was told that since March 2015 there had been 144,000, of which only 308 had been home consultations. Can the Minister explain why so few people have been offered home assessments? If he cannot do so, will he conduct an investigation in the Department to find out why so many sick and disabled people are being denied such assessments?
