§ Dr. Godman
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the railway stations in(a) Inverclyde, (b) Strathclyde and (c) Scotland which are inaccessible to wheelchair users; and what proposals he has to make such stations barrier free.
§ Mr. Watts
The facilities available for disabled passengers vary from place to place. The leaflet "British Rail and Disabled Travellers" is designed to help disabled passengers plan their rail journeys and gives contact details for British Rail managers who will provide passengers with information about their nearest suitably designed and equipped station. A copy of this leaflet is available in the House Library.
Government proposals to improve accessibility at stations for disabled passengers are included in the Disability Discrimination Bill, published last month.
