That this House is deeply concerned at the announcement by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) of the closure of almost one in 10 jobcentres; notes that only six of the original 78 earmarked for closure have been reprieved and two which were not under threat will now close; further notes that only 11 of the 80 planned to co-locate with local authorities have been given a reprieve; recognises that this will create difficulties in accessing services for many of the most vulnerable people and affects many areas of multiple deprivation; fears that this puts hundreds of staff at risk of redundancy; is disturbed to learn that the Department has not published any equality impact assessments or analyses; regrets that all but two back-of-house offices that were originally proposed for closure, as well as several corporate centre offices, are also to be closed; believes that those decisions will inevitably have a detrimental impact upon the communities affected; and calls on the Government to halt this ill-considered decimation of the DWP estate.
