Daniel Zeichner MP joined a Guide Dogs event in Parliament to show his support for taxi and minicab drivers receiving disability equality training when getting their licence. A Private Member’s Bill that sought to introduce such training was recently debated in the House of Commons, with Mr Zeichner responding for Labour, but the Bill was talked out by Conservative backbenchers and not voted on due to a lack of time.
