BR has, in recent years, made genuine efforts to enable its services to become accessible to people with disabilities. Although there are still problems, Arthritis Care has been grateful for these efforts and in particular for the way in which BR has been willing to listen to people with arthritis.
Will this all be swept away with privatisation? Do minimum services and quality standards cover people who cannot walk up steps, or jump over gaps? Are people in wheelchairs going to find themselves back in the guard's van? Some reassurances to people with disabilities about the terms of the sell-off would be most welcome.
