To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many people undergoing a work capability assessment for personal independence payment in Salford and Eccles constituency were found to be fit for work in each year since 2015.
Answer (Sarah Newton)
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is available to claimants with a long-term health condition or disability and can be paid regardless of whether a claimant is in or out of work. The work capability assessment is a feature of assessing entitlement to Employment Support Allowance and Universal Credit and is not part of the PIP assessment process
