Personal Independence Payment - Citizens Advice

My written Parliamentary question to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions on the impact the new Personal Independence Payments would have on advice services like Citizens Advice:

Stephen Kinnock: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether his Department carried out an assessment prior to the introduction of personal independence payments for existing disability living allowance recipients of the effect of that introduction on advice services such as Citizens Advice Bureaux. 

Justin Tomlinson: No specific such assessment was carried out.

Citizens Advice Bureaux have been, and continue to be, members of the Personal Independence Payment Implementation Stakeholder Forum and regularly engage with the Department on PIP issues.
