Thérèse Coffey – Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
House of Commons
19 September 2019
Dear Thérèse Coffey,
In your recent exciting video, introducing yourself as the new head of the DWP, you said, “It’s a privilege to lead a department that is here to help so many people.”
For us mere mortals awaiting, with clenched rectums, the remorseless UC rollout, I wonder if you are going to maintain the wait of a minimum of six weeks with nothing to live on before receiving our state penury?
I also note the plan for Universal Credit claimants to have their mental health assessed by work coaches to determine if they require extra support. Described by your department as: “The initiative means work coaches can continue to refer people with mental health conditions to specialist one to one support, without the need for a GP or clinical assessment.”
