Mr. Alfred Morris Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations his Department has received from councillor Neil J. Kearney of the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea concerning discrimination by the council against residents with disabilities; what action is being taken; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Major I have received a letter from Councillor Neil J. Kearney of the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea alleging discrimination by the council against disabled residents. Although the question of parking spaces for disabled people is a matter for the local authority concerned, I have asked officials to send a copy of Councillor Kearney's letter to the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea asking for their comments.
