Follow this EDM by:


That this House regrets the findings of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, having conducted an inquiry under Article 6 of the Protocol to the Convention, that has identified serious and systematic violations of the Convention by the UK; notes the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has found reliable evidence that the threshold of grave or systematic violations of the rights of persons with disabilities has been met in the UK; recognises that this finding reflects very poorly on the Government in failing to meet internationally-accepted standards in regard to the provision of care and support for the UK's most vulnerable people; and calls on the Prime Minister to intervene personally and to direct her Ministers to prioritise immediate compliance with all Convention standards on the Rights of Persons with a Disability, and to apologise to both the UN and to all persons with a disability for failing to satisfactorily identify and provide acceptable minimum levels of care, support and maintenance necessary to meet the basic living requirements of all persons with disabilities and resident in the UK.
