Challenge to disabled cuts ?

Charities may decide to join together to fight disability cuts

The Disability Alliance has given notice that it may seek judicial review of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) proposed cuts totaling some £2 billion to disabled people’s entitlements. Apparently, the judicial review application would be based on a legal argument that the proposed cuts breach the Equality Act, as the Government has failed to properly impact assess the effect of it’s cuts., said ministers had not properly assessed the negative impact of the benefit cuts.

According to the Disability Alliance the welfare reforms would disproportionately disadvantage over 500,000 disabled people and their families.
