The table below provides the information requested for initial decisions following a Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessment for the Gloucester Parliamentary constituency and Great Britain in 2018-19:

Of which, disallowed
Of those disallowed at initial decision
Award changed at Mandatory Reconsideration (MR)
