Discontent Over Proposed Irish Disability Law

See this report, which begins:

Organisations working with the disabled have accused the Government of letting them down in relation to the new Disability Bill.

The legislation is expected to be rushed through the Dáil before the end of current term despite a number of concerns being raised by various organisations.

Disability groups are particularly concerned that the bill does not set out legally enforceable rights for people with disabilities.

The Government is resisting a rights-based approach as it believed this could lead to a raft of court cases from disabled people demanding access to services.
