The Employment and Support Allowance (Transitional Provisions) (Existing Awards) Regulations (2010): SSAC consultation response

February 2010

CPAG responded to the Social Security Advisory Committee consultation on new regulations allowing for the movement of existing claimants of incapacity benefit, income support on grounds of disability and severe disablement allowance onto employment and support allowance (ESA). The response highlights our serious concerns over the basis of the proposed regulations, and suggests ways in which they should be made fairer to existing claimants.
