HC Deb 03 May 1978 vol 949 c161W
Mr. Silvester

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many ramps, hoists, lifts, special lighting, lavatory facilities and other such amenities for disabled people have been constructed in Government Departments by the Property Services Agency since February 1974 to date and also since June 1977 to the latest possible date for which figures are available.

Mr. Marks

This information is not available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. It is the Property Services Agency's policy to abide by the provisions of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 so that as far as possible disabled persons are not denied access to or employment in Government offices.
