BREAKING: House Of Lords Votes For Lord Low Amendment Asking For Assessment Before Introducing WRAG Cuts #NoESACut

February 29, 2016

The House of Lords have just voted  for  Amendment B1, tabled by Lord Low, by 289-219. The amendment asks for an impact assessment into the proposed cut to the WRAG before the cut becomes law.

This is a little piece of progress for disabled people after last week’s disappointment. The Bill will now go back to the House of Commons and it is to be hoped that the Commons will accept the new amendment.

    Who will be doing the impact assessment though? If it’s anyone to do with the government it won’t help

      Hopefully the Government will approve the assessment and then tell the public who will be doing it.
