The DWP won’t tell anyone how many people have died after having their benefits sanctioned

Over 90,000 people have signed a petition asking the Government to publish figures on how many people have died after having their benefits sanctioned.

The Department for Work and Pensions is refusing to publish the statistics, and is additionally withholding its internal reviews into why certain claimants died.

The DWP is currently appealing a ruling by the Government’s information watchdog saying there is no reason not to publish the figures.

The Information Commissioner said the DWP had no reason to withhold them.
