asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they propose to start medical tests for all of those currently in receipt of incapacity benefit.
Initially people on incapacity benefits will continue to be reassessed at appropriate intervals by the personal capability assessment. We plan to assess them under the new work capability assessment from April 2010, as and when customers are due to have their benefit entitlement reassessed. This means that over a three-year period, everyone on incapacity benefits will have been reassessed using the new test.
