THE EU is being urged to improve quality of life for handicapped people by making its institutions and publications more "disabled-friendly".
"All European documents should be produced in accessible formats so that people with disabilities can access them more easily," said UK Liberal Democrat Liz Lynne. "It would also be a good idea to have sign language interpretation for sessions in Parliament and key committees."
Lynne was speaking after her report on the disabled was adopted by Parliament last week. She said many of the improvements in her report could be in place by 2003, designated European Year of the Disabled.
