DWP Returns Motability Car To Claimant Who Made Mistake On Form While Appeal Progresses

March 2, 2016

A woman who had lost the right to a Motability car, after filling in her application incorrectly, has had her car returned by the Department of Work and Pensions while it considers her appeal.

Gillian Rodgers had been assessed as no longer eligible for the scheme and faces losing access to her car.

She is one of 70,000 people in Scotland who receive payments to help with cars and electric wheelchairs and who are being reassessed for the new Personal Independent Payment which replaces the Disability Living Allowance.

BBC Scotland’s Ian Hamilton has been to meet Gillian and has been following her story.

    I am sick fed up of these bullies taking advantage of vulnerable sick people. MPs like Mr Duncan- Smith who came up to Glasgow on a similar crusade in a different guise, have no right to judge what people are entitled to. And to hire companies outwith the health and welfare sectors to make this judgement is also an insult.
