HC Deb 28 October 2003 vol 412 c216W
Mr. Blizzard

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the arrangements are for piloting new disability living allowance claim forms. [132677]

Maria Eagle

On 22 September 2003, we began testing a new, shorter and simpler, postal Disability Living Allowance claim form at Wembley Disability Benefit Centre. We plan to run the test until the end of the calendar year and the findings will be evaluated in the New Year. Before starting the test at Wembley, we communicated widely with local groups representing customers with disabilities, to encourage them to cooperate in the use of the test form and to provide feedback, which will form a valuable part of the evaluation process. No decisions will be taken on further use of the new form until after the test results have been evaluated.
