Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please be kind enough and supply me with all relevant information at your disposal concerning DWP's employee screening process to ensure their suitability to oversee the social security benefit claims of UK citizens.

I require specifically to see the testing method/s employed by DWP that ensure an employee, especially at management level within the organisation, is a right thinking person. This is necessary to satisfy their part in the reciprocal common law societal contract: Duty of Care. Psychopaths are not right thinking persons, lacking empathy for others, and cannot, therefore, contemplate foreseeability in order to refrain from undertaking acts/omissions which may lead to erroneous behavioural traits, affecting the rights of social security benefit claimants.

If DWP has employed Dr Robert D Hare's Psychopathy Checklist - Revised (PCL-R) to adequately screen DWP managers for this severe personality disorder, then proof of this is required. If Dr Hare's test has not been employed, please make clear in your response, which method of testing was in fact used by DWP (Government of the United Kingdom).

I look forward to receiving the documents, this being a fair request in the public interest.

Yours faithfully,

Peter McNab
