Tories consult on disability policies

Nathalie Thomas

Conservative leader David Cameron is asking voluntary organisations to give their views on what future Tory disability policy should involve.

The party is holding five seminars over the next two months, during which disability charities can discuss subjects such as benefit reform and education with shadow ministers.

Findings will be reported to Cameron's Social Justice Challenge, a commission set up last year to strengthen the voluntary sector and pursue social justice.

"It is hoped that these seminars will give disabled people a feeling of ownership over our policy," said Jeremy Hunt, the shadow minister for disabled people.

However, the Conservative Party has stated that the commission's research "will not set party policy".
