Her Majesty’s Treasury carried out an equalities assessment on DLA reform and Personal Independence Payments. In addition, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) completed an Equality Analysis report ahead of the introduction of the standard rate of Personal Independence Payments. The analysis recognised the benefits of an online system but accepted that such a system would be dependent on an electronic data interchange between the DVLA and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The DVLA and DWP are working towards providing such a service.
