note 438


The Disabled Persons' Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC) has
published its Ninth Annual Report. Commenting on the Report which has
been presented to the Secretary of State for Transport, Sir George
Young, the Committee's Chairman Robert Taylor OBE said:

"This year has been a particularly challenging one for the Committee.
We have seen, for the first time, legislative provision made for
disabled people in the field of transport.

"The Disability Discrimination Act now provides the Secretary of
State for Transport with powers to make regulations covering access
standards for new public transport vehicles as well as giving a right
of access to public transport infrastructure (stations,
airports,etc).

"The Committee has been involved in formulating the legislation and
in continuing to progress access and mobility across a wide range of
other areas.

"These are exciting times for all those involved in the mobility
field and the Committee will have a central role in working with the
Department of Transport and the transport industry in drawing up the
Regulations that will follow from the Act"
