Guide Dog Owners Must Be Able To #AccessAllAreas

When Guide Dogs visited Parliament this week I was shocked to hear 76% of assistance dog owners have been illegally refused access to businesses and services.

I was pleased to attend the event and meet some of the lovely Guide Dogs and their owners at the request of some of my constituents to learn about the campaign to ensure assistance dog owners can #AccessAllAreas.

I'm fully behind this campaign as a shocking 73% have been refused access to a taxi or Private Hire Vehicle because of their assistance dog, and 76% have been refused access to shops, restaurants and hotels.
