Benefits For Blind And Partially Sighted People

EDM number 1529 in 2010-12, proposed by David Crausby on 03/03/2011.
Categorised under the topic of Benefits administration.

That this House supports the historic change made to the Welfare Reform Act in 2009 that means blind people will receive the higher rate mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance and partially sighted people will be able to claim the lowest rate of the Disability Living Allowance's care component, making a real difference to the day-to-day lives of blind and partially sighted people; and calls on the coalition Government to honour their pledge to protect the poorest and most vulnerable in our society by retaining these changes in the forthcoming Welfare Reform Bill.

This motion has been signed by a total of 56 MPs.
