Department for Work and Pensions written question – answered at on 18 September 2023.
Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he has made an assessment the potential merits of (a) adjusting and (b) abolishing the 2.5% cap on inflation related increases for recipients of the Financial Assistance Scheme.
While all legislation is kept under review as a matter of course, there are currently no plans to review the Financial Assistance Scheme indexation rules. The Secretary of State has therefore made no such assessment.
