These are the official statistics on the ISLP regime. They contain figures on lone parent work-focused interviews and ISLP sanctions up to March 2016.

From April 2016, Income Support (IS) sanction decisions go through the same system as Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) sanctions decisions. This allows standardisation across the benefits and will enable future data on IS sanctions to be presented in a similar way to that for JSA and ESA sanctions.
