Dear DWP freedom-of-information-requests,
Thanks very much for your note. I apologise that I haven't been clearer regarding my question. What I want to find out is how many people currently receiving enhanced mobility awards chose to relinquish them in favour of a Motability vehicle (and the numbers going to each individual motoring manufacturer). Are you able to provide any information along those lines please?
Please see the attached reply to your Freedom of Information request.
