Anti-Discrimination Legislation

EDM number 1242 in 1989-90, proposed by Sylvia Heal on 05/07/1990.

That this House applauds the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act which outlaws unjustified discrimination against the United States of America's 43 million disabled people and gives them new rights of employment, transport, access and communications; deplores the denial of these rights in Britain; and calls upon the Government to introduce a similar measure in the next session of Parliament to provide equal opportunities for the United Kingdom's six million people.

This motion has been signed by a total of 40 MPs.
