Scottish National Party (SNP) MP Deidre Brock backs calls to prosecute Iain Duncan Smith and Chris Grayling for their failure to make the work capability assessment (WCA) safe.

What: Deidre Brock tells the House of Commons that she supports efforts by the disabled-led grassroots group Black Triangle to persuade Police Scotland to prosecute Duncan Smith and Grayling for neglect of their public duty over their failure to act to make the WCA process safe, following the PFD report they received after the death of Stephen Carré.

Why significant: High-profile approval of the efforts to hold ministers and civil servants accountable in a criminal court for their failure to make the WCA safe, despite being told that it risked causing further deaths of disabled people.
