South Swindon MP Robert Buckland celebrated International Day of Disabled People at a Christmas Parliamentary reception.

It was hosted by the disability charity Scope to mark its new campaign calling for better services for disabled children and their families.

He was joined at the reception on December 3 by North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson and Scope’s celebrity supporter actress and comedienne Sally Phillips.

Mr Buckland said: “Research carried out by Scope shows that 62 per cent of families with disabled children are not getting critical support such as childcare or nursery places, appropriate schools, essential therapies or even healthcare in their area.”
