HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c64W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps were taken to publicise the invitation issued by the then Minister of State in the debate on 11 February 1983, Official Report, c. 1279, to investigate cases of alleged discrimination against disabled people.

Mr. Newton

The debate on 11 February received a great deal of publicity — [Vol. 36, c. 1279]. My hon. Friend the Member for Hornsey and Wood Green and I have taken the opportunity of reminding right hon. and hon. Members of his invitation in correspondence about discrimination, and it was publicised in a number of journals circulating among disabled people and those who work with them. At least one disability organisation with a wide membership asked members to submit cases of alleged discrimination for investigation.
