Minister of State for Disabled People

Dear Mr. Harper
The Work and Pensions Select Committee, which provides oversight of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), has recommended that the Government pay sick and disabled people benefits while they appeal against incorrect ‘fit for work’ decisions; see http://www.sheilagilmore.co.uk/2014/07/.
Does the DWP intend to implement this recommendation?
Thanking you in advance for your e-mail reply.
