Blue Badge Scheme

Volume 492: debated on Wednesday 20 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport with reference to the answer of 27 October 2008, Official Report, column 601W, on the blue badge scheme, what progress has been made in developing a project implementation plan for the blue badge reform scheme; and if he will place in the Library a copy of the implementation plan when finalised. (268401)

[holding answer 2 April 2009]: We are in the process of finalising the blue badge project implementation plan. A high level plan will be published on the Department for Transport's website shortly. This is being developed to provide stakeholders and other interested parties with further information on each element of the work programme and an indication of the associated likely timeframes for implementation. Copies of the high level plan will be placed in the Library, once published.

We also intend to publish regular Blue Badge Reform programme bulletins on the Department's website to provide progress updates.
