The DWP is asking whether you want them to retrieve and use the evidence used for your last DLA assessment if it is still available.

If you opt for this then they are not going to send you a copy. If you want sight of it first then you can include the information yourself with your PIP2 if you have a copy. If you don't have the information then you may be able to retrieve it by using Subject Access Request.
