Hi Again,  I do seem busy lately 🙂 Finally the long awaited reply from the Department of Work and Pensions, I think this is a reply to our second letter

I sure as hell hope it isn’t a reply to our first…

Anyway have a read and tell me what you think…

Dear Ms

Thank you for your correspondence regarding your Open Letter to Esther McVey MP. Government Ministers receive a large volume of correspondence and they are unable to reply personally on every occasion. I have been asked to respond and I apologies for the delay.

The Welfare Reform Act 2012 paves the way you’re a radical welfare reform programme designed to tackle entrenched poverty and end intergenerational worklessness. These reforms are urgently needed.

The Government has made it clear that employment and personal responsibility are fundamentally important in reducing poverty and is committed to ensuring the most vulnerable in society are helped to fulfil their potential while also ensuring that those who can work are also helped to do so. This is its clear policy objective.

The Department for Work and Pension releases a large amount of National and official statistics via its website, across all areas of its policy responsibilities, which can be accessed by anyone outside the Department. It is because of this open approach that politicians, academics, the media and wider public, are readily able to debate and interpret performance.

Yours sincerely

Head of the Correspondence Team

Mmmmm did they answer any of the questions from the original letter? I dont think so,and nor does Jayne . If you agree I ask you to write to your MP  and pass them a copy of our original open letter which has, as far as Im concerned, still not had any kind of adequate response. I’ll be back soon with a template to help those who need it. Everyone else please feel free to contact your MP give them a link to the Open Letter and a copy of the above reply and ask them just how is this a response to our concerns… dont forget to sign the petition if you haven’t already…

We can force them to listen if we work together…

So Say We All… Dxxx
