Labour is to say that too many mistakes are still being made regarding disability- with almost two in five assessments being appealed against and 42% of those appeals upheld, costing courts and tribunals around £20 million a year.
Shadow work and pensions secretary Liam Byrne will tell the Labour conference:
I say to David Cameron, Atos are a disgrace, you should sack them and sack them now.
[Labour] will change the law so hate crime against disabled people is treated like every other hate crime.
Like most families in this country, I know first-hand that disability can affect anyone. Someone is registered disabled every three minutes. Yet, today disabled people are threatened by a vicious combination of hate crime, Atos and the Bedroom Tax.
