MS Society criticises implementation of PIP benefit

20 June 2014 Last updated at 15:09 BST

A report by MPs has branded the implementation of the Personal Independence Payments (PIP) benefit a "fiasco".

PIP is replacing Disability Living Allowance, but the Commons Public Accounts Committee said the reform had been "rushed", with some claims delayed by more than six months.

But Minister for Disabled People Mike Penning said the PAC report was based on "old statistics" and that the National Audit Office had recognised that the reform "started on time and on budget".

Claire Nurden, senior policy and campaigns officer at the MS Society, spoke to Clive Myrie.
