answer text <p>The Blue Badge Scheme is primarily designed to help those who are unable to walk, or who have very considerable difficulty walking, whether they are drivers or passengers. We have no plans to extend the scheme to carers or partners. Carers should not use a badge if the badge holder is not travelling with them, so do not need a badge in their own right. The scheme already permits badges to be issued on a case by case basis to people with <em>any permanent disability</em> that affects their walking to the necessary degree. With around 2.6 million badges already on issue, it is important that we ensure the Scheme remains sustainable and protects preferential parking facilities for those with the greatest need.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The law relating to contempt of court applies generally to all courts and this includes the family court. The legislation establishing the family court provides that the family court may make any order (including orders punishing for contempt of court) that could be made by the High Court or the county court if the proceedings were in those respective courts; and the powers of judges in the family court to punish for contempt are proportionate to their level of seniority.</p> more like this
