The Sanctions Regime is biting deep here in Rochdale .

People can read the latest DWP statistics for sanctioned claimants here at :

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/jobseekers-allowance-and-employment-and-support-allowance-sanctions-decisions-made-to-december-2013

The latest figures made available to the Public are for the period 22 October 2012 until 31 December 2013.

These show 4,078 people had sanctions imposed during this time at Rochdale Job Centre , Fleece Street , [ figures for other local DWP Job Centres are available ] , 40 % of these people were sanctioned without being told why the sanction was imposed by DWP staff.

I’ve sent in a Freedom of Information Request to ask what the figures are from 31 December 2013 to the present day ….what the betting they are considerably higher than the 2013 figures ?

  1. I think we all know what the figures are, and you may find your request denied based on cost to supply information. Civil service freedom information is a law to itself. But my question is! What are we going to do about it?
