Advocates for disabled people are disappointed the newly appointed Minister for Disability Issues - National's Penny Simmonds - doesn't have a seat at the Cabinet table.

The Disability Support Network's chief executive Peter Reynolds says, with Simmonds being a Minister outside of Cabinet, it will make it hard for her to get leverage with her Cabinet colleagues.

Reynolds spoke to Corin Dann.
