§ Mr. Hague
The level of the contingency reserves held by Motability Finance Ltd. are a matter for discussion between MFL and Motability, an independent charity. When Motability and MFL reviewed the level needed early last year they agreed that £25 million, including tax credit, should be transferred by way of gift aid into Motability charitable funds. MFL states that the current level of the combined contingency reserves for car leasing and hire purchase schemes is £37.1 million. The level required is currently being considered as part of an annual review of financial arrangements by Motability and MFL. The Department and Motability have recently finalised a financial memorandum, the aim of which is to ensure that Motability can continue to build on its success in providing some 5,000,000 vehicles to disabled people at good value for money.
