Members of the House of Lords, including former Paralympians and those with personal experience of disability, will debate issues facing people with disabilities and the potential for improved treatment and outcomes in the next 50 years on Thursday 9 May.
This is a general debate. They normally take place on a Thursday in the chamber. During debates, members are able to put their experience to good use, discussing current issues and drawing the government’s attention to concerns.
The debate was proposed by Lord Borwick (Conservative), trustee of the Ewing Foundation for deaf children.
Members expected to take part include:
Baroness Barran (Conservative), government whip and former chair of the Henry Smith Charity for economic and social disadvantage, will respond on behalf of the government.
