The British government's controversial back-to-work programmes lay in
tatters after the Court of Appeal ruled their regulations unlawful on
February 12. The ruling is a huge setback for the Department for Work and
Pensions (DWP) whose flagship reforms have been beset with problems from
the beginning, with campaigners and unions accusing ministers of
effectively introducing forced labour.
