HC Deb 12 January 2004 vol 416 c557W
Mrs. Lawrence

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will make a statement on the draft Disability Discrimination Bill. [146796]

Maria Eagle

We are determined to end the marginalisation and exclusion of disabled people from all walks of life—which is the lot of too many of our disabled fellow citizens today.

The draft Disability Discrimination Bill—along with other changes to the law which we are implementing, will represent, when we achieve its passage, a great progressive social advance—one which I hope will be supported by everyone in this House.
