From BBC News.

 

The boss of Motability Operations is to step down by 2020 following criticism over his pay and a scathing review from the government’s spending watchdog.

The report from the National Audit Office revealed Mike Betts was in line for an extra £1.86m bonus on top of already “generous” pay.

The firm operates the Motability scheme which provides wheelchairs, cars and scooters to disabled people.

Mr Bett’s level of pay was described as “obscene” by MP Frank Field.

Mr Field, who chairs Parliament’s Work and Pensions Committee, said it was “beyond appalling to learn that money that could have been used to improve the lives of disabled people will be lining his pockets instead”.

The Motability scheme arranges cars, scooters and powered wheelchairs for disabled people in exchange for some of their state disability allowance. Motability Operations – the firm which runs the scheme – is a monopoly which faces no competition and also benefits from tax concessions.
