Disabled people face unlimited unpaid work or cuts in benefit - the documents | Politics | guardian.co.uk

We've had a lot of interest in our story on disabilities published last night. Many of the comments that have been posted express a sense of disbelief at the Department for Work and Pensions proposals. After discussion we thought it appropriate to release more of what we have for readers to view.

The story was based upon a tip-off about what the government was about to propose. We also came into receipt of documents from a meeting of 10 DWP officials and 21 disability and mental health stakeholder groups - charities and representatives - which outlined the basic elements of the policy. The meeting took place on 1 December 2011.

We've decided to upload the documents which are first, a Powerpoint presentation on the new Work Experience policy for the ESA Wrag group, and second, a question and answer session after the presentation as minuted by a DWP civil servant.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
