Disabled Parking Badge Entitlement Under Pip

EDM number 354 in 2017-18, proposed by Edward Davey on 10/10/2017.

That this House notes with concern reports of disabled people losing blue badges for accessible parking as they transfer from disability living allowance to the Personal Independence Payment (PIP); understands that for many, this has occurred because mobility support has been reduced; calls on the Government to take into account the full mobility needs of all disabled people, including where planning and following a journey without it causing distress is extremely difficult; urges the Government to adopt the approach of the Scottish and Welsh Governments where eligibility for the blue badge is based on an award of eight points or more in the moving around activity or 12 points in the planning and following journey's activity of PIP; believes this would ensure that all disabled people, whether they have a physical impairment, learning disability or cognitive impairment which affects their mobility, can access a blue badge and supports the review of Blue Badge eligibility for people with non-physical disabilities being proposed as part of the Department for Transport's Draft transport accessibility action plan consultation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
