S5W-18347: Hamilton, Rachael (Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 21 August 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what support it gives to premises license (a) holders and (b) applicants regarding assisting people who have a hidden disability.

Answered by: Ash Denham 31 August 2018

The Scottish Government published Guidance for Completing a Disabled Access and Facilities Statement to support applicants in completing, and local authorities in assessing, the required statement. The Guidance advises that it is important to consider that not all disabilities are obvious and provides a list of disabilities, which may be hidden.
