WCA Appeals - removing the facility.

J Newman made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Can you give a categoric, unqualified assurance that there have been no discussions about removing a claimant's ability to appeal against a WCA and the subsequent ESA decision altogether?

Note, this does not necessarily require there to be a plan.

Yours faithfully,

J Newman

Dear DWP Adelphi Freedom-of-Information-Request,

your reply combines 3 requests, so I am not sure which of the 3 reference number refers to which request.

Re 2nd section of your reply: The Welfare Reform Act is big - where can I find the specific detail you have referred to regarding this "reconsideration process" - how it works, who decides what etc.?

Yours sincerely,

J Newman
