Andrew Bridgen welcomes increase in disability spending commitment

27th March 2017

Andrew Bridgen welcomes increase in disability spending for every year to 2020 relative both to 2010 and today.

Can the Minister confirm that far from cutting support for disabled people, disability spending will increase every year to 2020 relative both to 2010 and today?


My hon. Friend is absolutely right that spend will increase, but it is also vital that this Government look at other issues, as we are doing—for example, on the consumer agenda. It is no good our spending money and getting the employment support right if buildings are not accessible and people cannot make use of these opportunities.
