Work and Pensions Committee to Include Stats Quiz in Annual Report of DWP

The Work and Pensions Committee has decided to examine the way DWP releases benefit statistics to the media. This work will be undertaken in the context of the Committee’s yearly assessment of the DWP Annual Report and Accounts (ARA). The ARA 2012-13 is expected to be published by DWP at the end of June. The Committee will announce further details about the inquiry then.
