Deaths Caused By The Dept Work and Pensions Staff

bill made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Waiting for an internal review by Department for Work and Pensions of their handling of this request.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

How many suicides have taken place over people not being able to manage due to the
failure of Dept and Work and Pensions staffs to give them enough monies to live on and
sustain a lifestyle that the law says they must have.
How many persons that were claiming or attempting to claim benefits from the Dept
Work Pensions have had relatives or friends reporting to the Dept Work Pensions that
the persons death was caused by suicide and the reasons given for those suicides are
not being given enough to live on or their entitlement by Dept Work Pensions.
How many Dept Work and Pensions staffs has been reported to the CPS for
manslaughter following people committing suicide as a result of the staff at the Dept
Work Pensions not giving them enough monies to live off.
How many Dept Work and Pensions staff have been prosecuted for manslaughter
following the suicide of a claimant who was not given his or her entitlement or suffered
a failed claim and this was reported to the Dept Work Pensions after the persons death.

I require the information to petition the CPS and my MP for prosecutions over the
deaths of claimants when there is evidence their deaths were attributed to by the
negligence of DWP staff. Bullying is a way of contributing to a persons death by suicide
and lots of claimants feel they have been bullied by the DWP, I WANT TO KNOW HOW
MANY DEATHS THE DWP staff are responsible for?”
Yours faithfully,

bill WEBBER

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'Deaths Caused By The Dept Work and Pensions Staff'.

The response you have given to my request is not true. In fact you do have the information I require or at least some it. How is it possible for the Dept Not to be aware of deaths that they have or have not caused if they had been contacted about it. I am concerned that this response is an attempt to avoid giving me that information because the Dept Work of Pensions is highly likely to be hiding these figures. I am demanding that you undertake an immediate internal review of your procedures because I believe you are withholding information or you do not know you hold the information when in fact you do.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

Yours faithfully,

bill

The Dept Work and Pension will avoid dealing with peoples complaints by failing to respond to them. If they don't respond then the other governing bodies like the INDEPENDENT COMPLAINTS EXAMINER INCLUDING THE OMBUDSMAN will say they cannot get involved until the DWP has given a final response. The complaint becomes floored. This leaves people including those who have disabilities unable to proceed and I am suggesting that this "no way forward situation" coupled with starvation and being unable to afford basic hygiene goods is entirely responsible for putting those persons in the mind frame that caused them to kill themselves. It is my view that the DWP are assisting suicide and that those staffs responsible for these deaths should be brought to justice and investigated properly by our Police.
