I sympathise with you bandite, I think the law came into force about October last year, and anybody supplying a service to the general puplic has to comply. I think after October 1st 2004 people who provide a service to the general puplic can be fined if there is no access for wheel chairs.

There would have been probably at least a year to 18months warning prior to the act becoming law. There is simply no excuse.

Good luck!!

I believe that businesses had five years notice regarding the disabled access laws coming into force.

From my understanding of the laws they are not as clear cut as you seem to think, it isn't just a case of that if a shop doesn't have a ramp they will be fined. A step is perfectly acceptable providing it is of a certain height and I think providing staff are willing to assist if any help is required.
