If your dept spend £500million on benefi assessments, how much does this save?

The request is waiting for clarification. If you are Trudy Baddams, please sign in to send a follow up message.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I heard yesterday the the DWP spend £500 million on benefit assessments but how much does this save the taxpayer on paying out benefits?

How many cases of fraud has this whittled out?

How much does it cost taxpayers/ your dept in court fees when so many claimants take their cases to appeal?

Yours faithfully,
T. Baddams
