HC Deb 03 November 1989 vol 159 c360W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Attorney-General what plans he has to make county courts more accessible for disabled people, especially in terms of physical accessibility, provision for the hard of hearing, clarity of signposting.

The Attorney-General

New and adapted or reconditioned court buildings provide, to the maximum possible extent, all the facilities required for the disabled, including lifts and ramps as necessary. Other buildings have had improvements incorporated where this has been feasible. New court rooms are designed to high acoustic standards which benefit the hard of hearing. Internal signs are made as clear as possible. Court staff are always available to assist disabled court users.
