§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to lay before Parliament under section 7 of the Disabled Persons Act 1981 a report on his proposals for ensuring or facilitating the improvement of means of access into buildings for disabled persons.
§ Sir George Young
I have been asked to reply.
My right hon. Friend is considering the replies to our recent consultation paper on a proposed amendment to the Building Regulations. This would introduce minimum standards of access to buildings for the disabled. After that, we shall be in a position to consider the timing and content of the report required under section 7 of the Disabled Persons Act 1981.
