HC Deb 28 October 1986 vol 103 cc109-10W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration his Department has given to the document "All Change: A Consumer Study of Public Transport Handicap in Greater London", published by the Greater London Association for Disabled People, a copy of which has been sent to him; if there is any action he will be taking on its recommendations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

We were interested to receive the GLAD report. We shall be giving careful consideration to the recommendations contained in it and I shall be meeting representatives of GLAD shortly to discuss them. The Department of Transport has a long-standing commitment to ensuring that the transport needs of people with disabilities are given a high priority.
