Environment Minister Robert Jones has issued a consultation paper setting out the government's proposals aimed at providing measures to help disabled people gain access to and within dwellings.

The proposals follow the commitment to consult given in last July's consultation paper on Government measures to tackle discrimination against disabled people.

Mr Jones said: 'I am today issuing a consultation paper setting out the government's proposals for amending the Building Regulations 1991 to make certain requirements in relation to the design and construction of new dwellings which will be of benefit to disabled people.

'It will be important to establish what measures will be of particular benefit to disabled people, and what the implications will be on housebuilding costs.
