Disability Discrimination Act 2005 Explanatory Notes

New section 47H: Sections 47E and 47F: supplementary powers

101.Subsection (1) enables the Secretary of State to issue a notice to an operator requiring him to provide information by a specified deadline to enable a rail vehicle which is described in that notice to be identified. This may be necessary, for example, where a member of the public reports a technical breach of the RVAR and knows the time and route of the journey on which the vehicle was being used but not the vehicle’s fleet number. Under subsection (3), the Secretary of State may impose a penalty on the recipient of a notice under subsection (1) if they fail to provide the information required by the deadline, which must be a minimum of 14 days from the date on which the notice is given.
