‘How to solve a problem like Maria’ – Disability Alliance

Disabled people in care homes and DLA mobility cuts

3 June 2011

The Guardian’s Amelia Gentleman recently probed the Minister for Disabled People, Maria Miller MP, on the issue of Government plans to cut mobility support for disabled care home residents.

The Minister’s ‘explanation’ of plans is below in the transcript of the interview. But what the Minister neglects to mention is that, under clause 83 of the Welfare Reform Bill currently in Parliament, disabled people living in care homes will not be eligible for the DLA replacement benefit (the Personal Independence Payment; PIP). The current Bill prevents care home residents accessing the PIP.

AG is Amelia Gentleman and MM is Maria Miller:
