That this House notes the Employment and Support Allowance (Sanctions) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/2756) laid in the House, which introduces a new sanctions regime for Employment and Support Allowance claimants, as an interim step towards the Universal Credit sanctions regime; and calls on the Government to ensure that the work related activity which ESA recipients will be required to undertake will be appropriate, given their health condition, and that benefit sanctions will only be applied where recipients have failed to comply with a request that was reasonable given their circumstances.
