§ Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list new measures his Department is taking to promote the aims of the International Year of Disabled People.
§ Mr. Fowler
I am planning a number of initiatives which will, I believe, help to promote the aims of the International Year of Disabled People. They include an international conference "Transport Without Handicap" to be held in London in March, a mobile exhibition on transport and disabled people which will tour the country between May and September, and a national rally for disabled drivers, which will take place at Silverstone in June. I have also undertaken to produce and publish during 1981 a national guide to door-to-door transport services for Disabled People.
I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his help and support in preparing these initiatives, particularly in undertaking the joint chairmanship of the conference "Transport Without Handicap".
