§ Mr. Roderick
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if he will seek powers to make grants available to hotels to adapt their premises to cater more easily for disabled persons and their vehicles;
(2) if he will seek powers to provide loans to hotels to adapt their premises to cater more easily for disabled persons and their vehicles, in the same way as loans have been supplied for them to conform to fire precautions.
§ Mr. Alison
I am not aware that lack of loans or grants for this purpose is acting as an impediment, and I understand that many hotels have already taken appropriate action. But if the hon. Member would let me have details of any particular case, I will arrange for inquiries to be made by those responsible.
