UPDATE – IDS WILL answer for misusing Stats

After some confusion about when the petition by myself  & Jayne Linney will be submitted to Parliament; and maybe even more importantly if IDS will attend the Work & Pensions Select Committee – I’m really pleased to share an email that Jayne received from Dame Anne Begg chair of the Select today:

I can confirm that IDS will be appearing before the Work and Pensions Select Committee on Wednesday 4th September where he will be asked questions about the DWP’s Annual Report and the Department’s use of statistics.

Best wishes


I am thrilled to confirm that our petition with it’s current 100,433 supporters will be formally submitted into Parliament by Liz Kendall MP, after she receives it outside the Palace of Westminster on September 4 2013.

Many Thanks to all of You who signed, shared, tweeted & pushed for this & let’s hope Mr ID Smith is thoroughly held to account

      I’m not sure, but it’s not to him its for the Work and Pensions committee who have seen and read the Open letter and all the comments, they where most interested in the comments and they have had a link to the petition from the beginning and have been updated about it as its grown. We have also been in contact with some of the members of the committee from the start keeping them updated and informed so the handing in is really a formality, but an important one as its is being handed to an Mp who will hand it in to the floor of the commons on the same day as he is being interviewed by the committee… 🙂 Dxxx
