Motion text

That this House notes that personal independence payment claimants are some of the most vulnerable people in society; further notes that claimants are currently only able to receive an audio recording of their assessment if they themselves provide specialist recording equipment at a prohibitive cost; believes that allowing claimants to record assessments should they so choose will increase transparency and fairness; further believes the option of recording assessments should be made available to all claimants; and calls on the Department for Work and Pensions to relax restrictions of audio equipment which claimants can use or to instruct ATOS to provide free of charge use for claimants of its recording facilities.
