Motion text

That this House welcomes attempts to raise awareness of the debilitating condition of prosopagnosia, otherwise known as face-blindness; recognises that, despite it falling within the remit of the Equality Act as an impairment that has a substantial and long-term negative effect on one's ability to carry out normal daily activities, public and professional awareness of the disorder is low; understands that an estimated 1 in 50, or 300,000 children, suffer from the developmental form of prosopagnosia; and calls on the Government to work to increase awareness of the disorder.
