Motion text

That this House congratulates the Government on its commitment to the protection and recognition of the rights of disabled people across the world by leading the way on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities; applauds the current plans to ratify this Convention and praises the commitment to equality for disabled people by 2025; regrets however that the Government now plans to place a reservation on Article 24 on Education in the Convention, thereby preventing disabled and non-disabled people from living and learning together in their own local communities; and urges the Government to secure a full ratification of the Convention without reservations in order to guarantee that there will be no educational apartheid for future generations of disabled people.
