The submissions focused on Welsh Government decision-making, tensions arising from devolution arrangements in the management of the pandemic and the inadequacy of planning in respect of Disabled people despite the Welsh Government’s commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).

Danny Friedman KCAnita Davies and Danielle Manson represented Disability Rights UK and Disability Wales. They were instructed by Shamik Dutta and Charlotte Haworth Hird of Bhatt Murphy Solicitors.
