Motion text

That this House congratulates Whizz-Kids on its campaign to raise awareness of the importance of independent mobility for disabled children; recognises that independent mobility allows children with mobility impairments to `keep up with childhood', acquire social, academic and development skills and improve their life chances; notes that there are over 70,000 children in the UK for whom the provision of the right wheelchair could make a critical difference; and calls on the Government to ensure that these children have access to the mobility equipment they need, when they need it.
