To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will make it his policy to (a) give priority to reconsideration cases where the loss of a mobility vehicle is imminent and (b) to extend payment of the allowance until after the reconsideration period in such cases.

Prioritising reconsideration cases where a loss of a Motability vehicle is imminent would be unfair to all other claimants who have requested a reconsideration. The Department is committed to ensuring that all reconsideration cases are dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. In addition, it is also improving its processes to help ensure that decisions are right first time. There is no legislative basis to extend payment of benefit after a disallowance decision has been made.
