To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions for what reason his Department has directed that a Ministry of Justice video advising claimants on how to appeal against a refusal of employment and support allowance should be removed from the website YouTube.

The Department did not direct that the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) video about employment and support allowance appeals be removed from the website YouTube. We sought to correct factual inaccuracies within the video which we brought to the attention of MOJ officials who agreed to revise the content of the video.

We understand that the Ministry of Justice reinstated the video, unamended, due to an administrative error. It has now been removed once more from the website.
