We also acknowledged the appointment of Esther McVey as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.
Esther McVey – Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
We wrote to both of them on the 10th January asking them to put forward to us their views on how this Conservative Government would be treating and addressing the welfare of disabled people.
What we asked was as follows:-
What we are really trying to determine is whether people in the UK are currently more aware, more compassionate and more understanding about the disabled and vulnerable in society?
And what can we all do as Individuals, Communities, Society, Media, Business and Government to improve the lives of those most disadvantaged?
We wrote to both on 10th January 2018 .. so far no answer!
We call on both Sarah Newton and Esther McVey to engage with us to let us have your views with regard to disabled people and disability.
We await their replies!
