Motion text

That this House believes that adequate levels of disability benefits are essential to help offset the extra costs of disability, to guarantee a level of income that ensures equality between disabled people and non-disabled people, and to enable the Government to achieve its objective of full civil rights for disabled people; and would be strongly opposed to any proposals that would undermine these objectives.
