HC Deb 20 March 1995 vol 257 cc62-3W
2. Mr. Devlin

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what measures the Government are taking to help disabled people. [12989]

Mr. Hague

The Government's plans for ending discrimination against disabled people were set out fully in the White Paper published on 12 January. These include new initiatives in education and transport, in addition to the measures in the Disability Discrimination Bill for new rights in employment and access to goods and services and the establishment of a National Disability Council. These proposals, which are clear, flexible and fair, have received widespread support.
