The sanctions report a “cosmetic exercise to justify the DWP but ignoring the real issues”

BBC: Benefits sanctions double against women, disabled and lone parents

Guardian: Benefit sanctions hit most vulnerable people the hardest, DWP report says “Claimants not told about hardship system and benefit sanctions imposed when they were not at fault”

SNP: Benefit sanctions rocket at hands of Westminster “Lone parents have been hit the hardest, with a staggering 563 per cent increase in sanction since 2009.”

“4. CPAG is concerned that the terms of reference for this review appear to be narrower than what is required by legislation” http://refuted.org.uk/2014/01/10/cpagonsanctions/
