Three disabled women make parliamentary call for action on DWP deaths.

What: The relatives of three claimants who died due to DWP failings – all three of them disabled people themselves – tell a parliamentary meeting of the need for urgent improvements to the social security system. They take part in a meeting on universal credit and mental health, hosted by the all-party parliamentary groups on mental health and universal credit. Imogen Day, sister of Philippa Day, Alison Burton, daughter-in-law of Errol Graham, and Joy Dove, mother of Jodey Whiting, all contribute to the meeting.

Why significant: MPs and peers hearing directly from the families of those who have died.
