Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Could you please confirm that the written declaration made by the INDEPENDENT CASE EXAMINER is correct.

Namely that those registered as unemployed but NOT in receipt of any cash benefits are purely signposted to such entities that may be able to tender some assistance BUT the DWP are under no obligation to tender any ASSISTANCE, TRAINING or HELP.

As this question concerns official DWP protocols I would find a response quoting the question as being vexatious ridiculous and a deliberate attempt to avoid a direct question concerning Government policy.

Yours faithfully,

James Spencer-Gray

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 'Registered as unempolyed, correct DWP procedures'.

How can a question asking for confirmation of a statement made by an official Government agency be deemed as vexatious, the statement was made on the basis that it was official DWP policy, so a simple question was such a statement correct or not.

Seeking transparancy may be considered by you as being annoying but as an entity funded by the tax payer you have a duty to confirm or deny what is official Government/ departmental policy.

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

Yours faithfully,

as it would appear to now be standard practice the DWP is REFUSING to actually confirm or deny official policy.

WHY?

Surely for the DWP to confirm or deny official policy cannot be deemed vexatious.

Could you please explain on what basis it can be considered as such?

Silly me, to actually think the DWP had a process whereby someone had to undergo a correct referral procedure when being considered for the Work Programme...……………

Are all the staff at the DWP unaware of their own published documentation such as their own public domain document
WORK PROGRAMME PROVIDER GUIDANCE.

Logically the only reason they are refusing to answer the question is that they are AWARE OF THE ABUSE OF POWER by members of the DWP
