Scrap proposals to move disabled people onto Universal Credit

So people have had to undergo all the problems of coming off pre-ESA benefits to go onto ESA, where many could have had their old benefit stopped while in the ESA process only a few years ago.

They, come next year, will be expected to undergo a similar process for Universal Credit, these are not well people and can least afford, from a health perspective let alone re financial , to be put in this position again.

If it is deemed necessary to proceed to UC, which is debatable, the DWP will have all the relevant information and with the age of computerisation why can not the UC process commenced until it is ready to be paid and at that stage stop the ESA payment and commence the UC payment immediately, a seamless transaction.
