Committee to publish Benefit sanctions report

19 March 2015

The Work and Pensions Select Committee will publish its report, Benefit sanctions policy beyond the Oakley Review, at 00.01 am on Tuesday 24 March.

The Committee’s inquiry considered progress made towards implementation of the 2014 Oakley Review of Jobseekers Allowance sanctions, and broader issues, including: the evidence base for sanctions policy; the legislative framework; Employment and Support Allowance sanctions; and the systems in place to prevent sanctions causing severe financial hardship.

The report will be available under embargo to the media and witnesses only on the morning of Monday 23 March.
