To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what representations he has received from people with disabilities who are holders of parking permits and from other key stakeholders on the ability of people with disabilities to continue to benefit from all associated parking facilities in EU countries after the UK leaves the EU and vice versa.
The Department for Transport receives occasional enquiries from members of the public and Members of Parliament on this issue. The Government recognises the benefits of mutual recognition of disabled parking cards across the EU for UK citizens, and vice versa. We are considering carefully the future of these arrangements. Until we leave, and during the implementation period, we expect to continue applying the current arrangements.
