Big debate Wednesday! - the effects of government policies on disabled people

via Jayne Linney:

On Wednesday 10 July, Labour is using Opposition Day to “debate the changes that affect disabled people - and at about 16:00 we will force a vote to demand a Cumulative Impact Assessment by October  2013 at the latest“

YES, at last the tireless work of Pat’s Petition, WOW, Spartacus and many many others has finally been recognised, but…this alone is not enough!

Between now and then we can all help make sure this debate is not lost, so please everyone

- Write to your MP and ask them to back the motion
- Write to your local paper and explain why we urgently need a cumulative impact assessment
- Tweet your support using #MakeRightsReality

and do everything we can to make sure this vital motion is carried -”That this House believes that the Government should publish a cumulative impact assessment of the changes made by this Government that affect disabled people (to be published by October 2013).”
