Attendance Allowance WILL NOT be devolved to local councils in England : Welfare Weekly.

On the face of it a Government decision that appears to be sensible, in that devolving Attendance Allowance to local authorities is opening it to a Postcode Lottery situation.

However, by the Government retaining the responsibility for this benefit it is left to them whether they wish to continue providing this benefit or not, or pass the responsibility to a third party organisation, the dreaded Atos, Capita, Maximus or any others who may come on the scene.
