Delana: Legislation good news for all

PARLIAMENT has passed the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Bill 2016.

In showing his support for the Bill yesterday, Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports and former Paralympic gold medallist Iliesa Delana said when enacted, the legislation would bring about changes to a range of legislation which would have a real effect on the lives of persons with disabilities.

“This legislation is a good news for not just those who are directly affected by disability, but for all members of the society as it seeks to make it more equal and inclusive,” he said.

The Bill was passed after a unanimous vote from both sides of the House.
