HC Deb 16 February 1973 vol 850 c453W
Mr. Stallard

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will consider displaying the symbol for "Access", issued by the Central Council for the Disabled, on all those parts of the Palace of Westminster which satisfy the criteria for display.

Mr. Prior

Every effort is made to make it as easy as possible for disabled persons to visit the House of Commons and there are always staff available to direct them. The symbol for "Access" is already displayed outside the lavatory in the Lower Waiting Hall but its wider display is inevitably restricted in a building such as the House of Commons, where it is difficult to meet the necessary criteria and where movement of strangers is necessarily curtailed. If however it is possible to make more extensive use of the symbol, this will be arranged.
