Barnet Council Cuts In Grants To Blind People

EDM number 842 in 2005-06, proposed by Andrew Dismore on 24/10/2005.

That this House condemns the decision made by Conservative-led Barnet Council on 11th October to terminate the grants of three disabled people which keep them in secure jobs; notes the fact that the Conservative Group fully recognised that this decision would throw these severely disabled people onto the benefits system; believes the cut of the grants shows the reality behind the rhetoric of `compassionate Conservatism'; welcomes the decision of the Barnet Council Labour Group to call in the decision for scrutiny on 27th October; and urges the Conservative-controlled Council to change its decision and thereby secure the employment that these disabled people have enjoyed for so long.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
