HC Deb 18 July 1984 vol 64 cc198-9W
Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what advice is available from his Department to planners and architects on the needs of disabled people when designing new swimming pools; what advice is available for the adaptation of existing swimming pools; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Macfarlane

The Disabled Living Foundation, in conjunction with the Sports Council, has recently published, "Sports and Recreation Provision for Disabled People", which is aimed at designers and architects involved in improving access for the disabled to sports facilities, including swimming pools. A copy has been placed in the Library.
