The right hon. Gentleman raises a very important point, and I hope the Minister will give a written assurance that it is not the case. About six weeks ago, all MPs received an update from the Department for Work and Pensions about sanctions that can be placed on individuals. One was on voluntarily leaving employment, and another was on voluntarily not accepting employment. As MPs have had that guidance, I hope that transferring it down the supply chain will be dealt with properly.
