MS Society criticises implementation of PIP benefit
A report by MPs has branded the implementation of the Personal Independence
Payments (PIP) benefit a "fiasco".
PIP is replacing Disability Living Allowance, but the Commons Public Accounts
Committee said the reform had been "rushed", with some claims delayed by more
than six months.
But Minister for Disabled People Mike Penning said the PAC report was based
on "old statistics" and that the National Audit Office had recognised that the
reform "started on time and on budget".
Claire Nurden, senior policy and campaigns officer at the MS Society, spoke
