Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Employment and Support Allowance: Terminal Illnesses (16 Oct 2017)

Penny Mordaunt: Rather than setting out a list of specific medical conditions, the criteria to identify those for whom reassessments are no longer required, is based on identifying claimants with the most severe health conditions and disabilities, where it would be unreasonable to expect the individual to undertake any form or amount of work or work related activity. We already have support in place for...

Clean Growth Strategy: UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (12 Oct 2017)

Clean Growth Strategy: UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (12 Oct 2017)

Penny Mordaunt: I will happily come to the mental health issue later, but, as hon. Members will be aware, PIP is a better benefit by quite a dramatic degree for those who have a mental health condition, when we look at the number of those with a mental health condition who are on the highest rates of the daily living and mobility components of PIP and compare that with DLA.
