HC Deb 18 December 1979 vol 976 c168W
Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, in view of the inaccessibility for many disabled children of many schools, if he will introduce legislation to make the access provisions of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act mandatory.

Dr. Boyson

No. Local education authorities do their best to make new school buildings reasonably accessible to the disabled, but it would be impracticable to impose the same requirements on all existing schools.
