A call for evidence will shortly be announced for the 2nd review into PIP.
Given the quantity of complaints/comments that were sent in for the 1st review, the government said that they werre going to do a lot but it just didn't filter through to the DWP and the assessors!!
Given the governments comments they seem to be leaning towards making it the responsibility of the claimant to seek and submit evidence in support of their claim. The actual PIP legislation stipulates that both the assessors AND the DWP have that responsibility. Perhaps it is another way of putting the blame on the claimants as to why positive appeal decisions are running at the height they are. At the moment the DWP are being blamed for not gathering any and all evidence - leaving the claimant to do the work when it gets to the Tribunal.
In my opinion another good idea to hold a 2nd review but a guaranteed whitewash will be the end result.
