Opposition Day — Assessment of Impact of Government Changes on Disabled People — 10 Jul 2013 at 17:23
The majority of MPs voted against an assessment of the cumulative impact of the changes made by the Government that affect disabled people.
The motion under consideration was:
- That this House
- believes that the Government should publish, by October 2013, a cumulative impact assessment of the changes made by the Government that affect disabled people.
The vote was on if an amendment, replacing all the operative text from the original, should be accepted:
- That this House
- welcomes the Government’s leadership in furthering the rights of disabled people;
- recognises the UK as a world leader in disability rights;
- notes that approximately £50 billion a year is spent on services for disabled people, including adult social services and including an investment of £3.8 billion in health and social care services in England to deliver more joined-up services to disabled people;
- further notes the £350 million allocated by the Government for programmes and support for disabled people to move into and stay in work; and
- acknowledges the Government’s collective determination to build upon the London 2012 Paralympic Games, and create a legacy which shines a light on the abilities and achievements of disabled people.
