ABSTRACT
A COMMENT article on October 25 included previously published claims that roughly a million existing claimants decided to come off Employment and Support Allowance rather than face a Work Capability Assessment, and that a further million were judged fit for work after being assessed. In fact these figures related to new applicants for the benefit rather than existing claimants. We are happy to clarify that, of the 1.5million existing claimants assessed so far, 265,000 people were found fit for work and 57,000 cases were closed before the assessment.
