-an end to forced work under threat of sanctions for people on disability benefits;
-an independent, committee-based inquiry into welfare reform.
You are encouraged to sign the petition which is available at:

The petition - which closes on 12th December - has almost achieved 100,000 signatures (at or above which, the issue is likely to be debated in Parliament).

Yours sincerely,
Bob Crow
General Secretary
