20 MarSelect committee concerned by government action on Access to Work

The chair of the Work and Pensions Committee, Dame Anne Begg MP, has expressed concern about government action on Access to Work.

Dame Anne wrote to the Minister for Disabled People after he told her he wouldn’t be responding formally to their report on Access to Work until after the general election.

Dame Anne was also concerned that he had introduced a cap on Access to Work awards. She said it was directly contrary to the conclusions and recommendations in their report.
