HC Deb 28 July 1983 vol 46 c581W
Mr. Norris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will estimate the cost to the Exchequer of the abolition of the upper age limit for mobility allowance.

Mr. Newton

It has been estimated that the extra benefit would be about £450 million a year at 1982–83 benefit rates. This estimate is, however, in the process of being updated.
