asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations his Department has had from the director of the Disabilities Study Unit on access for disabled people to public buildings; what replies have been sent; and if he will make a statement.

The director of the Disabilities Study Unit recently wrote to my Department about the Snow-don working party on the integration of the disabled. The reply was that compulsory requirements for access for the disabled to public buildings were still under consideration, but it was possible that persuasion and an increasing awareness would prove to be more effective.
