Sense, the national deafblind charity, response – MPs send ESA cuts back to the House of Lords for a third time.
Richard Kramer, Deputy Chief Executive at Sense, said:
“We are extremely disappointed to see the government once again reject the Lords’ sensible amendments. We believe ESA cuts will be incredibly damaging to disabled people, many of whom are already struggling to make ends meet.
We are calling on the government to do a full U-turn on the proposed ESA changes. We hope the government will listen again to the concerns expressed by disabled people who have repeatedly said that the impacts of the cuts to ESA will simply make it harder to pay for the support that might allow them to find work.”
