To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions with reference to the report of the Low Review, page 10, what consideration he has given to the finding that the mobility component of disability living allowance is key to meeting the personal mobility needs of care home providers.

When we announced that we would not remove the mobility component of disability living allowance from people in residential care from October 2012, we said we would review the position in personal independence payment. This is precisely what we have done. We are now considering the findings of the recently published review into provision for the mobility needs of care home residents by the noble Lord, Lord Low, before we announce our final decision.
