House of Commons release benefit sanctions report

Posted by Debbie Watson April 16, 2015

The Work and Pensions Commiittee has released a report entitled Benefit sanctions policy beyond the Oakley review.

The Work and Pensions Committee is appointed by the House of Commons to examine the expenditure, administration, and policy of the Department for Work and Pensions and its associated public bodies.

Economist Matthew Oakley conducted an independent review of JSA sanctions in relation to mandatory back to work schemes, and published his report in July 2014.
