§ Mr. Barnes
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement concerning facilities and arrangements for disabled people working in or visiting his Department's new building, Eland house.
§ Sir Paul Beresford
Eland house is currently under construction and will then be fitted out by my Department. It is my policy that we should follow best practice in providing facilities for disabled persons and we will ensure that the facilities and arrangements for disabled persons at the new building comply fully with code of practice, BS5810, and part M of the Building Regulations 1991.
