The number of incapacity claimants is set to be cut by up to a million as a result of tougher medical tests, means tests and re-examining existing recipients, a report has claimed today.

 

The study by a Yorkshire university says that 600,000 people could be pushed out of the benefit system altogether by Government reforms which will lead to an increase in unemployment figures.

I can't see how they can say that the unemployment figures will increase proportionately. It will only go up by the number of those failed IB/ESA assessments that are eligible to claim JSA. Not all will be eligible as they will first of all have to certify that they are ready, willing and able to look for work for at least 16 hours a week.

 

Those that can't agree to those terms will just 'disappear'. Especially if they bring in the idea to refuse ESA payments whilst appealing a decision.
