Coronavirus Bill 2019-2021: Our Response

Disability North have serious concerns about the Coronavirus Bill 2019 – 2020.

We believe that the Bill, which sets out emergency laws in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be catastrophic for disabled people and carers.

We therefore urge everyone to write to their local Member of Parliament (details below) to express their concerns before the Bill is due to be debated in Parliament on Monday 23rd March.

A template letter provided by the charity DMD Pathfinders can be found here and you can use the website to write to your MP.

The charity Inclusion London provide a useful summary of the devastating impact the proposed Bill could have on the lives of disabled people across the UK.
