Went to the my mother's bank the other day to register the power of attorney due to dementia and they wouldn't accept the photo licence on it's own. Luckily I had the green paper part as well and they said they have no plans to change. So be warned, put the paper part away. You never know when you might need it no matter what DVLA say.
To be fair, I'm planning on keeping hold of mine (paper counterpart) "Just in case"... and your example proves that may be a good idea (It's not exactly an inconvenience!)
Having said that, however, the theory is that they have no right to demand to see it, as it is no longer a legal document, is not required by DVLA (The issuing authority), nor, I presume, the police, the government, or any other governing body of this land. As of last Monday, the document they are asking for doesn't even exist!
They need to change their procedures.
