Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of a hard-hitting report by Trailblazers revealing that young disabled people face a more limited choice when travelling by public transport and pay more for the privilege; notes that this reduces independence and quality of life; commends Trailblazers on their very first campaign; further notes that Trailblazers is the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's new exciting v-funded young campaigners' network which will turn the aspirations of young disabled people into action; and calls on the Government, local authorities and transport providers to act on the recommendations of Trailblazers and undertake a major review of accessibility policies.
