Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Can you confirm that an individual could be allocated to the Work programme without having to undergo an interview as to what they could expect as assistance from the Work Programme provider and what was expected from them by the Work Provider and that such an allocation would not incur additional personal costs by the individual.
In no shape or form could this question be considered as vexatious but to seek clarification that no member of the DWP could allocated anyone on a whim or as a punishment.
