HC Deb 23 July 1981 vol 9 c200W
Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received on access to polling stations for disabled people; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mayhew

Three letters since May 1979, including one from an hon. Member. This Department issued guidance in 1975 encouraging acting returning officers to take account of the needs of disabled electors when siting polling stations. That guidance is being reviewed in the light of representations recently received.
