Sets out our response to the Transport Committee's report on disabled people's access to transport.
This memorandum provides the government’s response to the Transport Committee’s ‘Disabled people’s access to transport: a year’s worth of improvements?’ report.
We welcome the committee’s further report and their acknowledgement that disabled people’s access to transport is generally improving. We expect that the measures in the Disability Discrimination Act 2005, which received Royal Assent on 7 April 2005, will have a signiﬁcant impact on the day-to-day mobility of disabled people. We will be seeking to introduce the act’s transport provisions as soon as practicable.
