Disabled People: Motability

Volume 706: debated on Thursday 22 January 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will relax the system for down payments for vehicles under the Motability scheme in the present economic situation. [HL520]

Motability is an independent charitable company and is responsible for the administration of the Motability scheme. The pricing policy is therefore determined by Motability and not the Government. Motability has advised that the scheme currently offers over 200 models of car that do not require a down payment.
