To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what assessment he has made of the effect of regulations introduced earlier in 2017 to restrict access to personal independence payments (PIP) for some groups on take-up of PIP.
Answer (Penny Mordaunt)
The Personal Independence Payment (PIP) amendment regulations were introduced to clarify the assessment criteria, restore the original aim of the policy and make sure we are giving the most support to those who need it most. The regulations did not represent a change in policy, hence there will be no impact on forecast take-up of PIP.
