    Well, my letter of evdience has been submitted today and acknowledged by an email.

    They will contact me if they want to know more, but I don't really expect that to happen.

    Feels good to be able to contribute something, however small.

    I've just been watching the first evidence session of this inquiry.

    Some quite interesting points were made, by both sets of 'expert' witnesses
    No results or even a report yet, they are only gathering evidence at this stage.

    For anyone interested it can be watched here:
    http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Main/Pl...eetingId=16863

    Warning it's 2-1/2 hours long.

    You may also need to install the Microsoft Silverlight player to watch it.
    Took me about 3mins to download and install it.

    Edit- If installing the player I recomend that you restart your computer after the install and before going to watch the video.

    This report has been published this week and can be found here:

    http://www.publications.parliament.u...en/814/814.pdf

    You can download it as a PDF (too big to attach here).

    Most of it talks about JSA but ESA sanctions are covered and especially those who are on the Work Programme should take a look.

    Can't give a comprehensive review, still no laptop so having to use my tiny phone keypad, hard to type with it.
