Stephen Crabb Tells AGM- No PIP Cuts
Stephen Crabb Secretary of State at DWP addresses All Party Parliamentary Group on Disability AGM.
Over seventy observers, MPs and peers heard the Secretary of State at DWP Stephen Crabb repeat his commitment that the planned saving in personal independence payment would not be sought from cuts in welfare payments elsewhere affecting more disabled people.
He outlined his plans for a green paper to be published later this year that would set out how the Government intends to achieve its ambition of halving the disability employment gap.
The paper would be the subject of a consultation exercise. His presentation was followed by the Minister of Disabled People Justin Tomlinson MP responding to questions from the audience.
