The Late Muriel Roberts And Council Housing Reform

EDM number 2674 in 2005-06, proposed by Keith Vaz on 09/10/2006.

That this House notes with sadness the death of Muriel Roberts, a frail elderly woman from Leicester who never got the benefit from a walk-in shower that would have enabled her to wash herself properly; further notes that Mrs Roberts requested the shower from Leicester City Council a year and three months before her death and that her progress towards getting the shower was impeded by bureaucratic frustrations and circuitous procedures that are not atypical of such requests; calls for an immediate simplification of local government procedure relating to the request of housing modifications; and notes that this would be of particular benefit to the elderly.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
