His Disabled Persons’ Parking Badges Bill completed its third reading yesterday afternoon (Tuesday 15 January).
The bill – a private members’ bill – will now almost certainly become law as it requires only the royal assent, usually a formality.
MPs and peers from across the political spectrum supported the bill in both the House of Commons and the Lords.
Mr Kirby said: “This bill will make significant improvements to the Blue Badge scheme, making it much better for disabled people who rely on the availability of disabled parking spaces.
“I am delighted that it has been so well received in both Houses of Parliament.
“It is now on the verge of becoming law, which is fantastic news for genuine users of disabled parking spaces in my constituency and across England and Wales.”
