Mr. Lewis

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the DSS allowances which qualify the recipients for vehicle excise duty exemption. [14388]

Mr. Bowis

The following DSS allowances currently qualify for vehicle excise duty exemption:

  1. 1. War pensioners mobility supplement;
  2. 2. Disability living allowance—
    1. a. for recipients of the higher rate of the mobility component;
    2. b. in respect of the care component;
  3. 3. Attendance allowance.

In the case of 2(b) and 3, however, only where the application for exemption was approved before 13 October 1993, and in the case of 3, only to those unable or virtually unable to walk.
