Tory government blows £40million fighting to block benefits from sick and disabled people

The huge sum of money was spent contesting thousands of appeals by people who say they were wrongly denied support

The Tory government has blown almost £40million in one year fighting to block benefits from sick and disabled people, it emerged today.

The huge sum of money was spent contesting thousands of appeals by people who say they were wrongly denied support.

Campaigners say benefit tests, which are outsourced to private firms, are flawed and the Disability News Service has gathered 200 cases of alleged "dishonesty" by officials.

Hundreds of thousands of people have appealed since the launch of Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
