That this House recogises that over half of people with autism have spent time with neither jobs nor benefits; further recognises that only 15 per cent. are currently in full-time work; acknowledges that the system is failing people with autism, as over 80 per cent. of people with autism who applied for benefits needed support to do so; agrees that no one should be written off; and calls on the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions to make the system fair for people with autism.
