Please note: The guidance was originally placed in the Commons library in October 2016 at the request of the then Work and Pensions Minister Lord Freud. Updated versions were placed in the library on 14 September 2017, 18 July 2018, 28 March 2019, 21 October 2019, and again on 29 October 2020

The links on this page are to copies of the guidance on the Parliament website, and are therefore likely not to be routinely updated. If you become aware of an updated version of any of the documents, do let us know and we'll update this page.
