Government to review its policies & benefits for 14.1 million disabled people
Call on the government to consider holding debates in Parliament between MPs & 14.1 million UK disabled people to discuss issues affecting them. It will allow those with disabilities to raise their concerns about benefits, housing costs & their treatment by DWP on Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
The UK government/politicians must hold live parliament debates between MPs & disabled people (particularly the severely disabled). This is crucial to give them the opportunity to raise issues of concern. Many are facing PIP reductions which affect their benefits, fees, housing costs & impacts on their lives. Some disabled people work part-time or have been made redundant due to COVID-19. They face an uncertain future. It is time for politicians to listen to the experiences of real people.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
