To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what progress has been made on the Pathways to Work incapacity benefit reform pilots he announced last year. 
The Green Paper "Pathways to Work" set out a strategy for enabling people with health problems and disabilities to move into work. Our response to the consultation will set out the recommendations we intend to take forward, together with our plans for implementing the pilots.I recognise that my hon. Friend has a particular interest here as one of the pilot areas falls within his constituency. This provides a great opportunity for the community he represents, and I can confirm that excellent progress is being made in establishing that pilot.
