  1. To examine the DWP, ATOS & Maximus's culpability for deaths of benefit claimants

    The government responded

    The assertion behind this e-petition is wrong. It is untrue to say there has been a marked increase recently in the number of deaths and suicides of claimants found to be fit for work following a WCA.

  3. Abolish Inheritance Tax. It is wrong to tax assets that have already been taxed

    The government responded

    Government recognises the natural desire of people to work hard and pass on assets to their family but must balance this against the important contribution that inheritance tax makes to the exchequer.
