Rewarding Atos and Capita is ‘appalling’

by Steve Beasant on 5 June, 2018

Liberal Democrat Work and Pensions Spokesman, Stephen Lloyd, has branded Tory Government plans to extend contracts for Atos and Capita as “appalling”. He said: 

“Profit should never be a consideration when determining the safety net for the most vulnerable.

“It is appalling that this Conservative Government sees fit to reward these companies by extending their contracts despite their shocking performance figures and outcomes.

“Both the Work Capability Assessment and PIP tests should be taken out of the hands of the corporate behemoths such as Atos and Capita immediately.”
