HC Deb 13 December 1988 vol 143 c532W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether he proposes to make any changes in the age limit for applications for mobility allowance.

Mr. Scott

As my right hon. Friend announced on 27 October, we shall be bringing forward legislation to extend the upper age limit for receipt of the allowance from 75 to 80, as an interim measure pending our consideration of the series of reports on the survey of disabled people undertaken by the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys.
