Disability allowance rates 8% lower than UK

Local mobility also 4.8% lower

Disability living allowance rates in the Isle of Man are around eight per cent lower than those in the UK.

However, the Treasury Minister Alfred Cannan says government officials are fully aware of the position and will be making a full statement on the matter in next month's Manx budget.

 

Mr Cannan also revealed the local mobility aspect of the allowance was closer to the UK payment, although still 4.8 per cent lower.

 

Douglas North MHK David Ashford asked for the comparison in the House of Keys.
