Tories slash cash aid for the disabled
Tory ministers have been blasted for slashing cash used to improve disabled access on trains and buses.
Labour claims Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has overseen a 42% cut from £43 million to £25 million a year. And his junior minister Robert Goodwill has refused to hold talks with disability groups about transport improvements. The Government has also failed to adopt an EU rule that bus drivers must have disability awareness training.
