Blue Badge Debate Secured
Greenock and Inverclyde MSP Duncan McNeil has secured a debate in Parliament next Wednesday on the extension of the Blue Badge criteria.
Duncan McNeil MSP pushed for a debate after being contacted by a worried parent whose son Aiden lost his badge due to changes in the guidelines.
Duncan McNeil said:
“The Scottish Government consulted last year on changing the law to extend the criteria. There was overwhelming support for doing so but nothing has happened yet. This is why I have secured a debate in Parliament taking place this Wednesday on the matter.”
“I hope that it will act as a catalyst to move us towards a change in legislation so that young people like Aiden and his parents get the improved support they need to go about their daily lives safely.”
