Ministers on the Isle of Man are to scrap their version of the UK government’s much-criticised “fitness for work” test, prompting calls by disabled activists for the UK government to follow their lead.

The decision, announced to members of Tynwald, the Isle of Man parliament, follows years of criticism of the assessment on the island, mirroring concerns raised repeatedly and publicly in the UK.
