Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

How much money has the government spent between 2011 to 2023 on:

PIP Mandatory Reconsideration
ESA Mandatory Reconsideration
LCWRA / LCW Mandatory Reconsideration
ESA Mandatory Reconsideration
DLA Mandatory Reconsideration

PIP Appeals
ESA Appeals
LCWRA / LCW appeals
ESA appeals
DLA appeals

For all of those benefits what percent are overturned in the claimants favour and what percent of cases has the DWP settled before going to tribunal

If you don’t have certain years for certain benefits or are missing data for whatever reason give the years you have for when those benefits started and a total figure

Yours faithfully,

David Andrew Jameson
