Dear Ms. Hilling,
I am a 56-year-old Disability Studies specialist from Montreal, Canada. I have been following the crisis for sick and disabled people in the U.K. since last May's "hardest hit" march.
With regard to the September 4th Atos Parliamentary debate and your questions to Chris Grayling, were you able to obtain specific answers?
I have an active Freedom of Information request to the DWP that might interest you:
I'll forward you their response when I receive it. I would appreciate hearing from you, if possible.

Many thanks for your email. No, I did not get an answer and have now submitted a written question asking the same questions.
I would be extremely grateful if you send me the response if you do get a response to your FOI. Anecdotally there seems to be a large number affected but it would be very useful to have hard evidence.
