"Pathways to Work" largely ineffective

Labour spent £760m on a programme to reduce the number of people on incapacity benefits called "Pathways to Work". Work on the scheme was contracted out to private providers.

A report, issued today by the Labour-chaired Public Accounts Committee of the House of Commons, reveals that the programme was largely ineffective and that the private companies did not give value for money.
