The Work and Pensions Committee has launched a new inquiry examining DWP’s spending priorities and how it makes its spending decisions, in light of the announcement of a forthcoming cross-government Spending Review.

The committee are inviting ideas and “model budgets” to suggest what DWP’s spending priorities should be – and what trade-offs it might have to make – for the next three years. The benefits freeze is due to end before next year’s Budget.
