Motion text

That this House welcomes Sightsavers' Put Us in the Picture campaign; recognises that there are more than 1 billion people with disabilities worldwide, that one in seven people have a disability, and that 80 per cent of people with disabilities live in developing countries; acknowledges, that unless actively included from the start, people with disabilities can remain hidden or excluded from development policies and programmes; and encourages the Government to continue to mainstream disability inclusion in its work through the Department for International Development's Disability Framework and maintain a global leadership role in supporting, working with, and including people with disabilities in developing countries as it seeks to meet the commitment to leave no-one behind as agreed in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
