 Incapacity Benefits

An article last week, based on Department of Work and Pensions statistics, said that eight out of ten people tested for new incapacity benefits had been found ‘fit for work’.

We are happy to clarify that this figure included 57 per cent of claimants who were deemed fit for work immediately and a further 21 per cent who, with support, will be able to work in the foreseeable future.

William George Pottinger

A graphic accompanying an article about bankers yesterday listed William George Pottinger as one of ten people who have lost a knighthood through misconduct since the Second World War.

In fact Mr Pottinger’s revoked award was a Companion of the Order of the Bath.
