19th July 2012
David Burrowes MP has today announced his support for the Disabled Person’s Parking Badges Bill tabled by the MP for Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven, Simon Kirby. The Private Members Bill, which was unopposed during its second reading in the House on 6th July 2012, has now been passed to the Committee Stage.
David Burrowes said: “I am very happy to support my colleague’s Private Members Bill along with Enfield Council. This Bill presents us with the opportunity to stand up for those who genuinely need a blue badge, whilst clamping down on those who abuse the current system. This legislation will greatly help the most vulnerable within our Borough and I am pleased the bill has received cross party and government support and wish it a safe passage as it proceeds to committee.”
