MP:‘Sys­tem is flawed’

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

Dr Lisa Cameron slammed the con­tro­ver­sial wel­fare sys­tem as fun­da­men­taly “flawed”.

She said:“I have been very con­cerned by my con­stituents’treat­ment by DWP in re­la­tion to both Uni­ver­sal Credit and PIP. I have there­fore raised these is­sues with the Sec­re­tary of State for DWP in the House of Com­mons and she has now agreed I can send her of­fice de­tails of the cases that we have had dif­fi­culty with.

“The sys­tem as it is ap­pears flawed and is un­doubt­edly caus­ing stress and ex­ac­er­bat­ing men­tal ill-health. In Ms John­ston’s case I man­aged to get a res­o­lu­tion af­ter mak­ing the case a pri­or­ity with DWP. How­ever, it was a pro­tracted is­sue and had an ad­verse im­pact as she states”.
