The Social Security (Personal Independence Payment) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 (SI 2017/194) make changes to PIP Activities Managing therapy or monitoring a health condition and Planning and following a journey from 16 March 2017.

These regulations are ‘subject to negative resolution procedure’ and automatically become law without a vote. However, if a member of either the Commons or the Lords makes a motion to annul a negative resolution regulation (known as a ‘prayer’) and it is accepted the regulation has to be debated and voted on.

These two EDMs are motions to annul the ESA and PIP regulations. If enough MPs sign up to them these regulations will be debated. In order to do this you need to get your MP to sign up to the motions
