  1. At a time of lockdowns, one would expect authorities to be respectful of peoples health, especially those with disabilities, but here we have the DWP, who appear to not show respect for anyone.

    Lockdown commences which is restricting people working, but 2 days later the DWP continuing with health assessments to find if people are ‘fit for work’, whether they are or not what work is available.

    Any sensible organisation would suspend these assessments, but then we have the DWP!
