Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Ref : VTR 3115 - 1502
On the 2nd May 2012 I had a reply to a FOI Request from yourselves.
One of the questions I asked was
5)Can you confirm or deny that claimants who have requested a home
assessment have also been granted the request to have their home
assessment audio recorded?
Your answer was
In reply to Q5, I can confirm that a Work Capability Assessment has
never been recorded by Atos Healthcare during a home assessment
The reason I am contacting you again over this particular response is the fact that your answer was untrue, whether you gave me the wrong information because of a slip up I don't know, but I thought I'd give the DWP the opportunity to rectify this mistake?
This is an automated confirmation that your request for information has
been received at the DWP Central FoI Team.
We will forward your request to the relevant information owner within the
Department who will respond to you direct.
Should you also have any further queries in connection with this request
do please contact us.
