To ask His Majesty's Government what progress they have made on their plans to audio-record all assessments for disability benefit by default.
22 June 2023
Audio recording is now available for face-to-face and telephone assessments with all the department’s assessment providers. These arrangements are publicised on providers’ websites and in the assessment invitation letters to claimants. The department remains committed to offering audio recording on an opt-in basis, giving claimants the choice of having their assessment recorded.
