Disabled people ‘only an afterthought’ according to the Lords report

Laws that are designed to outlaw discrimination in Britain “simply aren’t working in practice” according to a House of Lords report.

The government said it monitored those with a duty to make reasonable adjustments on disability issues.

Baroness Deech, who chaired the Lords committee said: “We have been struck by how disabled people are let down across the whole spectrum of life.

“Access to public buildings remains an unnecessary challenge. Public authorities can easily side-step their legal obligations to disabled people, and recent changes in the courts have led to disabled people finding it harder to fight discrimination.”
