To ask the Secretary of Stale for Transport, what are the expected savings to be made from the repeal of the disabled passenger scheme.

I understand the saving will be in the region of £500,000 in the first year, based on the approximate annual number of new applications.Current beneficiaries under this scheme will not lose their entitlement to exemption from vehicle excise duty as a result of the repeal.
