    Wonder if anyone can help?

    I am looking for a chronological list of significant changes to the Benefits Scheme, things like when LHA scheme started, when Pension Credits/ESA started, when major regulation changes occurred like full Maintenance disregards, etc, going back over the last 5 years or so.

    Does anyone have such a document or know where I could find something similar?


    Suppose I must have had a life at some point!
