THE grieving daughter of a disabled man who took his own life after wrongly being found fit for work called for cross-party support to force David Cameron to publish Government reports into the deaths of another 60 victims during a meeting with SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson and Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell yesterday.

Robertson has “relentlessly pursued” the Prime Minister to release information about the deaths of countless disabled people, who have died in similar circumstances to Anne-Marie’s O’Sullivan’s father Michael, in a bid to prevent further deaths.

He has twice raised the case of 60-year-old Michael, whom a coroner ruled had killed himself after being wrongly found fit for work after a Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) assessment, during Prime Minister’s Questions insisting the death of O’Sullivan cannot be ignored by the Tory Government.

Last night O’Sullivan’s daughter Anne-Marie said: “I had a good meeting with Angus Robertson and John McDonnell today and it was very productive I look forward to more of the issues raised by my dad’s case being raised by both parties in the New Year.”

In September it was revealed that inner London coroner Mary Hassell concluded that the “trigger” for O’Sullivan’s suicide was his fit-for-work assessment.

She demanded action to be taken to save lives in her Prevention of Future Deaths report sent to the DWP.

The father of two, from north London, was moved from employment support on to Jobseekers’ Allowance despite providing reports from three doctors, including his GP, stating that he had long-term depression and agoraphobia and was unable to work. He killed himself at his home on 24 September 2013.

Robertson previously told Cameron: “The Prime Minister has questions to answer – the Department for Work and Pensions has undertaken 60 investigations into suicides that have occurred after benefits were withdrawn or reduced, but has so far refused to publish what it has learnt.

“The Prime Minister cannot ignore the Coroner’s warning that there is a risk of further deaths.”

John McArdle, co-founder of the Scottish-based Black Triangle disability campaign, who have been working with the O’Sullivan family, said there were a number of questions both the SNP and Labour must put to Cameron about the deaths.

These include: “Do you believe that your ministers hold any responsibility for the death of Mr O’Sullivan and potentially for the deaths of many other people with mental health conditions?”

McArdle said: “Anne-Marie, Disabled People Against Cuts and the Black Triangle are demanding that the opposition including the SNP and the Labour party go in all guns blazing about these deaths because we want maximum exposure on this because people are dying. That was the main reason Anne-Marie had this meeting.

“We are demanding answers to these deaths, it has got to stop.”

Next week Black Triangle is joining forces with Inclusion Scotland to meet with Labour MSP Neil Findlay, followed by a meeting with SNP MSP Christina McKelvie “with a view to getting the BMA and GMC brought before the committee and give an account for themselves as to how they let Mr O’Sullivan down and thousands like him”.

McArdle said: “Is the Government not guilty of wilfully breaching the common duty of care owed to vulnerable citizens undergoing assessment leading to avoidable catastrophic harm and in many cases to their deaths?”

Robertson said: “It was a pleasure to meet with Anne-Marie O’Sullivan today to discuss her important campaign to highlight the failures of the Work Capability Assessment system which is unfit for purpose.

“Too many families have been affected by tragic deaths like that of her father Michael O’Sullivan as a result of the broken and unsafe WCA system.

“I have raised this issue personally with the Prime Minister on several occasions, yet have still to receive an adequate response – the UK government must listen and do what they can to ensure an end to these tragic deaths.”
