Motion text

That this House raises concerns about the Department for Work and Pensions' management of Personal Independence Payments (PIP); notes that a number of constituents in Hemsworth constituency have reported long delays in the processing of PIP claims and changes of circumstances, which can have a significant negative impact on the finances and health of claimants; further notes the Department for Work and Pensions' announcement on 22 January 2023 warning PIP claimants that they may be taken to court if they do not report a range of changes in circumstances; believes that this warning from the Department for Work and Pensions will cause a great deal of concern to those claiming PIP and could lead to even longer delays in processing PIP claims; and calls on the Government to review PIP with the aim of reducing the delays experienced and making the system easier and less stressful for claimants.
