Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords] — Clause 18 — Meaning of "Disability" — 6 Apr 2005 at 17:45

I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 46, line 1, leave out subsection (3).

This is the "depression amendment", which is a useful shorthand description that we are all using. It reverses the amendment introduced in the other place by removing clause 18(3), which inserts new sub-paragraph (2A) into schedule 1 to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The Government firmly believe that that amendment of the definition of disability is not the right thing to do.

Question put, That the amendment be made.

The House divided: Ayes 214, Noes 98.
