§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received from the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust concerning the recommendations of "Arts and Disabled People", the report of a committee of inquiry under the chairmanship of Sir Richard Attenborough; what action he has taken or will be taking; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We have noted with interest the recommendations of the report "Arts and Disabled People" which concern transport.
We have a clear policy of working to improve transport services and facilities to enable disabled people to travel for whatever purpose they choose. Involvement in the arts, whether as spectators or participants, is part of that freedom of choice that we are working to achieve.
