Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
In the last six months how many people have been sanctioned in
connection to the Work Programme? How many of this group have
gone onto apply for Hardship Payment Provision and how many
actually got awarded Hardship payments indicating amounts paid and the percentage of reduction compared to JSA rates?
If this data breakdown is too costly to provide how many hardship payment applications have been made in the past six months, how many actually awarded indicating the amounts paid and the percentage of reduction compared to JSA rates?
