Labour Calls For WRAG Cut To Be Reversed

December 5, 2018

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

Labour is claiming that 46,000 sick and disabled claimants have so far been hit by the decision not to pay an additional amount to claimants in the work-related activity group of employment and support allowance (ESA).

The work-related activity component of ESA, paid at a rate of £29.05 a week, was ended for new claimants in April 2017.

According to Labour, there are now 46,000 ESA claimants whose ESA claim is under a year old and who will therefore not have been eligible for the work-related activity component.

Of these, 29,000 claimants have a mental health condition as their primary disabling condition.

Labour have called on the Conservatives to reverse the cut.
