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.
