Iain Duncan Smith is to be reported to the official statistics watchdog, after a “groundless” claim that 75 per cent of jobseekers believe benefit sanctions have helped them. Owen Smith, the shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, said he intends to refer Mr Duncan Smith to the UK Statistics Authority for investigation following the claim that the sanctions regime helps claimants “focus and get on”.
