Harrington's review of the Work Capability Assessment is devastating - Byrne

Liam Byrne MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, in response to today’s publication of the Harrington Review, said:

“Professor Harrington’s review is devastating – progress is slow and incomplete, Ministers are failing to grip the shambolic appeals system, and the whole process is utterly failing to get people back into work.

“This damning report completely vindicates Labour’s call for fast and fundamental reform of the Work Capability Assessment. Ministers must now stop dragging their feet and take the urgent action we have been calling for.”
