Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Are there any plans to update the hold music to have a little bit of a variety? Since it’s always the same classical music on loop. Especially if you have to listen to it for 45 minutes to a hour. Also is it possible for the DWP to add a estimated time of when you will be connected to an advisor?

Yours faithfully,

R James

Finally, a potential end to to what can only be described as a cruel and unusual punishment.

Or is that that the entire Dept?
