What work-testing the DPB will achieve

This is a direct quote from a letter I received from the Ministry of Social Development 13 May 2005;

Under the work test, 17.5 per 1,000 Domestic Purposes Benefit or Widows Benefit clients left benefit each month. This has risen to 18.8 per 1,000 clients in June 2004 following the introduction of enhanced case management and the personal development and employment planning process.

So the Ministry's own evidence shows that current policy is more successful than National's.

What a waste of time these reforms are going to be.

Great job on Larry Williams yesterday Lindsay. Thanks for the logical POV.

PDEP cannot be called " enhanced" Case management.

So let's hear a little less Act style sniveling and a little more "go Labour" stuff.

17 or 18 per 1,000 leaving the DPB - National or Labour's idea of reform - is a pathetic result. Especially when equal numbers are being admitted onto it.
