asked the Minister of Transport if, in his reviews of the orange badge (disabled drivers) scheme, he will further consider the claims of those who, whilst not able to qualify for mobility allowance, are unable to walk very far or carry parcels, and so on, particularly those suffering from severe disablement of the heart or back, where with- drawal of the orange badge would result in very great hardship to the person concerned.
