That's a rather lazy dismissal, is it not?

 

The cost of appeals is an estimated £50 million a year, of which £12.1 million (for 2010/11, as stated by Chris Grayling in the House of Commons, you can check Hansard for his response to Tom Greatrex on this), is the staff costs at Jobcentre Plus.

 

This is in addition to the cost of the contract with Atos, which I believe is around £80 million a year.

 

As I posted at #21 (which you ignored), there is far more underpayment for DLA than overpayment (£80 million underpayment). Incapacity Benefit (now replaced) is overpaid (around £90 million) but almost all of that is error (mostly official error) and the rate of fraud is even lower than DLA.

 

JSA and Pension Credit have significantly higher rates of fraud and error.

 

Yawn.

I have waited for people to come out and say something good about ATOS, and it seems as though no-one can. When a person who is blind, can be found fit for work, it is worrying, and when a person with one leg, can't get a single point of the required 15 points, it is becoming a serious problem. When an ATOS healthcare professional makes a mistake, it seems that there is little or no comeback. I can see that they are probably under pressure to acheive certain targets set by a government, that only cares about the rich in society. This govermnet looks after the banks, and forgets about the people constantly. All parties are probably the same, and the govenments need to find ways of making money, instead of cutting everything.
