First Do No Harm on assessment – lobby in Parliament, Wednesday 13 February 2019, 1pm – 6pm

Lobby aims to persuade MPs that DWP must First Do No Harm with assessments

 

Thanks to the valuable support of John McDonnell and the Shadow team, there will be a lobby next Wednesday 13th February to encourage MPs to challenge social policy legislation to end the preventable harm caused by the flawed disability benefit assessments.

Please write to your MP and encourage them to attend the lobby.

Disabled people or allies who want their MP to attend the lobby should write to their MP – for example, by using the website WriteToThem – to inform them they wish to seek an appointment on the day of the lobby.

The lobby is due to take place on Wednesday 13 February between 1pm and 6pm, with the briefing from 2-3.30pm, in the Palace of Westminster’s committee room 15. The committee room can be used for one-to-one meetings with MPs or further discussions on the issue from 1pm-2pm and then from 3.30pm-6pm.
