To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what steps his Department plans to take to gather evidence of overlapping payments made to recipients of the disability living allowance mobility component in residential care homes.

DWP officials have been reviewing the available evidence and gathering more to determine the extent to which there are overlaps in provision for mobility needs of people in residential care homes.

When the work is complete we will make a final decision on the way forward. Any changes will be rolled into the introduction of Personal Independence Payment from April 2013.

Our intention is not to reduce the mobility of residents in care homes but to remove any overlaps in provision.
