Tom Greatrex (Rutherglen and Hamilton West, Labour)

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many people are presently waiting longer than 13 weeks to undergo a work capability assessment since completing the ESA 50 questionnaire.


Chris Grayling (Minister of State (Employment), Work and Pensions; Epsom and Ewell, Conservative)

There are currently 37,909 ESA initial referrals open and awaiting an assessment that are in excess of 13 weeks from the date that the questionnaire was returned.

However, Atos Healthcare and the Department are negotiating a realignment plan to ensure the increases in outstanding referrals are cleared as soon as possible and additional practitioners are being recruited and trained to address this.

Stephen Timms (East Ham, Labour)

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions for what reason the words “Where you are providing support for JSA participants, which is work experience, you must mandate participants to this activity. This is to avoid the National Minimum Wage Regulations, which will apply if JSA participants are not mandated” have been removed from paragraph 14, chapter 3 of the Work Programme Provider Guidance.


Chris Grayling (Minister of State (Employment), Work and Pensions; Epsom and Ewell, Conservative)

All the Department's guidance is constantly reviewed.
