Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in the interests of the disabled, he will take steps to collect and publish details of hotels which have available lifts that can be used by disabled persons.

Mr. Freeson

This information is already available in the following publicationsHolidays for the Physically Handicapped 1976" (obtainable from the Central Council for the Disabled, 34 Eccleston Square, London SW1V 1PE, price 65p net). AA Guide for the Disabled" (obtainable from the Automobile Association, price to non-members 50p).

Some local associations of disabled people publish guides to their own towns, and in addition societies such as the British Diabetic Association and the Chest and Heart Association publish lists of hotels suitable for their members.
