2006 National Disabled Members' Conference
7 July 2006
Carried as Amended

Disabled people are constantly presented with barriers, and in some cases hazards arising from modern methods of packaging products.

In terms of labelling particularly foods stuffs and medications there are major barriers as a consequence arising from the formats used to produced such information.

Therefore this conference calls upon the National Disabled Members Committee to liaise with other disability groups to form a common approach to the Disability Rights Commission with the aspiration that the industries concerned can be encouraged to be more proactive on dealing with the issues raised in this motion. The National Disabled Members Committee shall report back to the 2007 National Disabled Members’ Conference on the progress made.
