DISABLED people in Huddersfield have been promised help if buildings don't meet new access laws.
The latest part of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 came into effect on October 1 affecting access to shops, services and public buildings.
Labour councillors in Kirklees say they want to know if the new laws are being taken seriously.
They have now prom- ised to help people take advantage of the new laws wherever they can.
Clr Mehboob Khan, leader of the Labour Group, said: "This legislation has been coming in gradually over the last few years, but now it will not be lawful for people to offer a second-class service to people just because they are disabled.
"For instance shops and offices offering services to the public have now to be accessible to disabled people.
"Where buildings can be made accessible then they must be.
"Where they can't, then services must make what the law calls `reasonable adjustments' so that disabled people can get the same service as everyone else."
appealed to people with problems to take them up with local councillors who could then help.
The law also covers the council's own buildings.
