Disabled access to public transport debate

MPs have taken part in a Westminster Hall debate on disabled access to public transport.

The debate was led by the Labour MP for Wigan, Lisa Nandy.

Ms Nandy has spoken out in the House of Commons on a lack of provision for disabled travellers, such as poor access to local trains.

The government has said that all trains should be compliant with the regulations on disabled access - the Rail Vehicle Accessibility Regulations 2010 - by 2020.
