    DWP say they will scrap 80% target for upholding MRs.

    In a written response to the W&P Select Committee the DWP have agreed to scrap their "internal measurement" (they still won't admit it's a target) for upholding 80% of decisions at MR.

    A quote from the letter:

    I am very concerned to hear that the committee has taken evidence that initial decisions are being "rubber stamped" at mandatory reconsideration.
    http://www.parliament.uk/documents/c...-Newton-MP.pdf

    Note that wording carefully; the Minister for Disabled People is not saying that she is concerned that MRs are/were being rubber stamped, she's saying that she's concerned to hear that evidence says so.
    (Nobody likes being caught).
    They are supposed to have introduced new measures to stop this as well.
