unstar this property answer text <p>(a) Information about the volumes and outcomes of appeals to the First-tier Tribunal (Social Security and Child Support) (SSCS) including (a) Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is published at: www.gov.uk/government/collections/tribunals-statistics</p><p>HM Courts &amp; Tribunals Service (HMCTS) does not record data based on constituencies. SSCS appeals are listed into the hearing venue nearest to the appellant’s home address. The published Tribunals Statistics CSV files provide information about the outcomes of PIP appeals for individual hearing venues including Leeds, where appeals from constituents living in the Leeds area would be heard.</p><p>(b) This information is not held centrally. The Tribunal hears appeals generally against decisions on entitlement to benefit, or its rate of payment. Some Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) decisions may feature an element of assessment against work capability criteria, while other ESA decisions may not. HMCTS does not, therefore, hold the information requested.</p><p>Latest figures indicate that since PIP was introduced, 3.5 million decisions have been made up to June 2018, and of these 9% have been appealed and 4% have been overturned at Tribunals. For ESA, 3.5m ESA (post Work Capability Assessment) decisions have been made between April 2014 and March 2018 and of these 8% have been appealed and 4% have been overturned at tribunals.</p>
