House Of Commons To Debate ESA WRAG Cuts At 6PM

March 2, 2016

Same Difference understands from respected disability campaigner Paula Peters that today’s House of Commons debate on ESA WRAG cuts will begin at 6PM.

It is to be hoped that the Commons will accept the new amendment, passed by the Lords on Monday, calling for an impact assessment into the proposed cut before it becomes law.

However, we at Same Difference, along with many other disability campaigners, have been let down by the House of Commons too many times before on disability benefits. We will warmly welcome a victory, but we won’t hold our breath.

Please share this post to make people aware of the timing of the debate. Same Difference will be following the debate and we will being you the results of any votes when they break.

Updated 10am: Debbie Abrahams MP Tweets us to say:

Same Difference will be tuning in from 6PM just in case.

    Let’s hope we win. But if we don’t – even more urgent to rationalise ESA and lower the bar to the Support Group. Support the Dead Parrot campaign –

    the debate will fail that’s for sure mp’s are overall are not that bright at all according to my daughter who works as a consultant to many of them
    she tells them one thing and they don’t like it and do something completely different
    could you trust them ? never

    as she would tell you outside of parliament there useless and would never be able to even work alongside her such is there lack of world knowledge

      as i predicted the mp’s hatred of the sick and disabled as simple as that
      if a mp tried this on in the sixties the chances are they wouldn’t live to tell the tale
      for some reason bad things always happened to those that hated others but today the complete opposite how times have changed
