§ 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.
