Disappointing response from Labour to Jayne Linney’s query about what the party would do, in government, for people who are genuinely unable to work through disability (and let’s add long-term illness as well). Most of it has nothing to do with the question that was asked. The relevant section is at the very end, and consists of a couple of lines about reforming the work capability assessment. I agree with Jayne that this is desperately needed, but it would be like putting a sticking plaster on a broken leg – a completely inadequate response to a situation that requires much more serious treatment. Hopefully Kate Green will remedy this lack.
