The #DWP are having to use legacy Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) for NEW claimants for a simple reason.

The High Court ruled in June it unfairly discriminated disabled claimants by removing their Severe Disability Premium (SDP) 2/5
This ruling applies to those on EITHER Personal Independence Payment (PIP) with daily living component or Disability Living Allowance (DLA) middle/high care component

If the DWP put new claimants on #UniversalCredit it would be making a two tier system for disabled claimants
