Social Security Benefits: Disability

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN HL6185, tabled on 10 February 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to publish the research report, The Uses of Health and Disability Benefit, commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions now that it has been published by the Work and Pensions Committee on the 3 February 2022; and, if so, when they plan to do this.

Protecting a private space for policy development has always been an important factor in the formation of Government policy.

We are currently considering a range of policy options for changes to health and disability benefits and support, reflecting on the 2021 Green Paper and subsequent consultation. As part of this, we will regularly draw on a wide range of evidence, research and analysis.

We plan to officially publish the research as soon as we can once policy development work has concluded and therefore publish it alongside the Health and Disability White Paper.
