MPs take evidence on Personal Independence Payment

21 January 2013

On Monday 21 January the Work and Pensions Select Committee will take evidence from Esther McVey MP, for the first time since her appointment as the DWP Minister for Disabled People.  This will be a one-off session on Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the Government's replacement for working-age Disability Living Allowance, which is set to be phased in from April 2013

The session will follow-up the Committee's February 2012 report on PIP in the light of recently published consultation responses and the Social Security (Personal Independence Payment) Regulations 2012, which set out the eligibility thresholds and assessment criteria for the new benefit.

Details of the session are as follows:

Time/date: Monday 21 January at 4.30 pm
Location: A meeting room at the House of Commons (to be confirmed on 17 January).
