HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 c407W
Mr. Harry Barnes

To ask the Attorney-General if he has any plans to improve access for disabled people to courts and other law buildings.

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.
