Delays to Personal Independence Payment

The reports of delays to the implementation of PIP are hardly a surprise.  I was expressing doubts about the programme over eighteen months ago, and the Major Projects Authority had picked it up as a project in trouble last May.   As Anne Begg has commented, however, delays are no bad thing. many problems to date, such as the hamfisted attempt to reassess claimants for ESA, have been caused because the government has tried to do too much too quickly.
