note 298

The Department of Transport is inviting nominations for membership of
its Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC).

As statutory advisers to the Department on transport and mobility for
disabled people the DPTAC makes an input to Government policy in this
area. The main Committee and its working groups advise on a wide
range of transport issues from the Orange Badge Scheme to the design
of new public transport vehicles.

Membership of the Committee is limited to 20 people, of whom half
must be disabled people. It is also essential that the membership
reflects the widest range of disability and transport issues.

The Committee holds quarterly meetings in London. Members are unpaid
but the Department of Transport meets the costs of travel for all

Members are appointed for a three year period and the new
appointments will be made by the Secretary of State for Transport in
December 1995. Major disability organisations, transport industries
and local authority associations are being invited to make
nominations, but nominations are also welcome from anyone with
relevant experience.

Copies of the nomination form and the Committee's Annual report are
available from the Department of Transport's Mobility Unit.

Nominations close on 31 October 1995.
