Government responds to Work & Pensions inquiry report

The Government has responded to the Work and Pensions Committee inquiry into the disability employment gap. BASE gave both written and oral evidence to the committee which published its report in July.

The response rejects the committee's recommendations to adopt new targets for cutting the employment gap and to devolve funding and powers to local areas. The response reiterates current Government initiatives and, overall, feels pretty dismissive of the committee's report.
