DWP admits peer review process lacked “robust governance”.

What: A letter from the information commissioner says that DWP has admitted that from February 2012 until September 2015 it kept no records of what happened to recommendations made by its peer review process. DWP has told the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) that it accepts that the peer review process lacked “robust governance” during this period.

Why significant: DWP’s admission casts further doubt on  its resolve and willingness to learn from the deaths of claimants.
