Atos against British disabled


From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Atos appeals have already cost £25m

Monday 26 November 2012

Welfare minister Lord Freud admitted today that appeals against decisions by hated benefits assessor Atos had cost over £25 million in the first half of 2012.

The Department of Work and Pensions, in charge of the disastrous scheme, took a hit for £11.3m and the courts £14.9m.

He revealed the figures after Labour’s Baroness Wilkins told peers at Lords question time that 40 per cent of people who appealed had been successful.

“In total that figure is roughly accurate,” Lord Freud conceded.

Liberal Democrat Lord German also added that one in four Atos centres “did not have flat level access” for wheelchairs.

He asked if the government would ensure that wheelchair access would be provided in assessment centres.
