Commenting, Co-Chair of the Parliamentary Party Committee on Work and Pensions, Jenny Willott said:

"With the Government planning a host of changes to benefits for disabled people, it is vital that we ensure that people have confidence in the assessment system.

"Conference has recognised some of the good work that this Government has already done in reforming the Work Capability Assessment by implementing the independent review of Professor Harrington, but there is clearly more still to be done.

"Whilst the Government is having to cut back public spending in order to clear up the economic mess left behind by Labour, it is really important that we continue to provide as much support as possible for sick and disabled people.

"As this motion shows, the Liberal Democrats are committed to making sure this happens."
