The case of Errol Graham’s death is referred to DWP’s new serious case panel.

What: DWP talks about its serious case panel for the first time, in responding to the media coverage of Errol Graham’s death. It says: “We take this very seriously and have referred this to our Serious Case Panel, which includes independent members to help scrutinise and establish any lessons.” But DWP gives no further information about the panel, including its purpose, aims and membership.

Why significant: Shows further lack of transparency in measures supposedly being taken to improve safeguarding of claimants.
