Bríd Smith TD on transport and disability report in the Dáil

A new report on DISABILITY AND ACCESS TO TRAVEL was discussed yesterday in the Dáil. A good report, with good ideas. Will it be matched by the government’s committment to equality for disabled people? Consider this: they are gung-ho on privatisation of transport, yet there is no requrement for private operators to facilitate disabled travellers! This is outrageous. We must keep the pressure on Shane Ross and the govt parties to do the right thing – they can’t be trusted to do its themselves
