§ Helen Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make it his policy to require organisations which provide care in the community to ensure that residents in receipt of the mobility component of disability living allowance retain that money or have it expended solely on their behalf. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance may not be taken into account for charging purposes. Section 73(14) of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992 requires these payments, or the right to receive them, be disregarded in any charging schemes which have regard to a person's means.
