Laura Pidcock, Labour MP for North West Durham, says: “I’m delighted to say that I’ve been able to secure a Westminster Hall debate on Personal Independence Payments (PIP) next Wednesday, the 31st of January. As the debate will be focusing on claimant experience, it would be really useful if those people who have been through PIP could share their experiences of the process, either on here [Facebook] or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org”.
It’s very important to raise both political and public awareness of the consequences of government policies and the harmful and distressing impact these are having on so many of us. The government have denied a ‘causal link’ between their policies and the correlated distressing experiences of disabled citizens. This is a good opportunity for us to present the government with the empirical evidence of that link.
