Support petition to stop merger of disability tests for ESA/Universal Credit and PIP

On 5 March 2019, benefits Minister Amber Rudd announced at a Scope conference that the DWP would develop a single digital system – online like Universal Credit – for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Personal Independence Payments (PIP), and have an integrated assessment for ESA and PIP from 2021.

Seeing as PIP & ESA are different benefits with different purposes, this is causing great concern.
