To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, for what reason the letter of 14 January 2019, case reference SG11604, on Iain Kinloch, was sent to the Department for Work and Pensions; and whether that letter was read by the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State and Minister for Defence People and Veterans.
27 February 2019
As the contents of the letter related predominantly to the issue of Employment and Support Allowance, which is administered by the Department for Work and Pensions, the letter was transferred to that Department for answer. This is in line with normal Departmental practice. I have now written to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions about the points raised.
