Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Candidates with Disabilities 5 Jun 2019

    The Government are working with disability organisations to help political parties better support disabled candidates. In December 2018, we launched the £250,000 EnAble fund, providing grants that cover disability-related expenses that people might face when seeking elected office.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Candidates with Disabilities 5 Jun 2019

    My hon. Friend makes a very good point. That is, of course, a matter for the Welsh Labour party in the Welsh Assembly. We have taken the view here that excluding disability-related expenses is vital to closing the gap between candidates with disabilities and candidates without disabilities, therefore enhancing equality of opportunity.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Candidates with Disabilities 5 Jun 2019

    The hon. Gentleman makes a very good point. It is good for us to ensure we have candidates from all backgrounds and all abilities, with candidates with disabilities having the opportunity to stand. There is a duty on all of us in political parties to do that. I am very proud that the Conservative party has a fund to support candidates who need extra help.
