To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions pursuant to the answer of 9 May 2011, Official Report, columns 1002-3W, on the disability living allowance, for what reasons he does not plan to publish the findings of the review into funding for the mobility needs of people in residential care; and when he expects the work to be complete.

There is no formal review. Officials in the Department for Work and Pensions have been reviewing mobility needs and available support for residents of care homes. When this work is completed soon we will make a decision on the way forward. What is important is that we get the policy right. Any changes will be rolled into the introduction of personal independence payment from April 2013.
