Cruel Tory benefit sanctions regime to face committee inquiry

Post by Admin on Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:27 am

MPs have today launched an inquiry into the Tory Government’s controversial benefit sanctions regime, citing “copious evidence of claimants being docked hundreds of pounds”.

The Work and Pensions Select Committee, a cross-party group of MPs, will look at whether there is any evidence to support minister’s claims that benefit sanctions “encourage” the unemployed to seek employment, or if vulnerable people are being cruelly “pitched into financial crisis” through no fault of their own.
