Cruel Tory benefit shake-up has forced 75,000 disabled people to give up their adapted cars
Motability bosses revealed the shocking figure, due to a switch to Personal Independence Payment (PIP), as MPs slammed bumper pay of £1.7m at the charity's parent firm

A cruel Tory benefits shake-up has forced 75,000 disabled people to give up their adapted cars, it has emerged.

Motability bosses revealed the shocking figure tonight as MPs slammed huge reserves and bumper pay of up to £1.7million at the charity's parent firm.

Motability is a charity that leases adapted cars to people, paid for by disability benefit.

But thousands of its clients have lost out after being moved from the old Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to the new Personal Independence Payment (PIP), which Tory ministers launched in 2013.

Tonight Motability director Declan O'Mahoney confessed that figure now stands at 75,000 people - 43% of the 175,000 Motability clients who have moved from DLA to PIP so far.

He told MPs on the Treasury and Work and Pensions committees: "They either drop to standard rate [of payment] or nil, and as a consequence they’ve had to leave the scheme."

Labour MP Neil Coyle said he was "appalled".

They've exceeded the 60,000 target they set out for, I wouldn't be suprised if a new target of 120,000 has been set :-((

The ideologist number of claimants they would prefer is... Zilch, nill, zero, to have any means of available motorbility to get around and to be able a form of life than four walls of one's home.

If only they looked in the mirror and thought of how much they claim for traveling allowance, Time they all paid their own way, digging deep into their own pockets to pay, instead of costing the public purse every time they need a lift home just around the corner in some casses. Ten minute walk or a tenner in taxi fare.
