HARLOW MP, Robert Halfon, visited Bristol Street Motors on Friday morning to present a Motability car to Ms Johnna Howland, a Harlow resident.
The Motability Foundation has been helping disabled people for the past forty-five years lease cars, wheelchair accessible cars and powered scooters, and hopes to still be going for the next forty-five. Ms Howland is just one of eight-hundred and twenty-seven people they have helped in Harlow.
Mr Halfon presented the car and key to Ms Howland and speaking to Your Harlow, said: “As Harlow’s first disabled MP, I was honoured to be at Bristol Street Motors this morning with the Motability Foundation to take part in a car handover with Jo, an amazing Harlow resident.”
“The Motability Foundation helps thousands of people across the country including right here in Harlow. It is the perfect combination of Government, charity and the commercial world coming together to keep Harlow’s disabled people mobile.”
Quit hypocritical given his party's appalling treatment of disabled and long term sick. Not to mention his own voting history which supports the party view
It would be interesting to see how he would create if he had to rely on welfare because of an incapacity to work and the humiliation you have to go through to claim said benefits. They are out of touch with the real world. Would he do a photo call when the ladies car get wrecked by the ever increasing potholes around the town
Great for the lady, good on her, hope she gets good use of it. Mr Halfon smile your on camera, how about handing the keys over to a fully working SFG school. Yet another photo opportunity, too get to miss I guess.
Halfon has voted a hundred times to reduce funding for disabled, not increase welfare benefits to less able people, despite receiving additional payment for being a disabled MP. Halfon has also voted to take funding away from HARLOWschools when he was an education minister, If you think he's worth voting for you must be blind.
