I have a disabled client who awkwardly grabs his touch screen to use it. Unfortunately this means he often 'zooms' webpages, making them unusable.
Can I disable this behaviour in Chrome?

You can disable the full touch screen not just the pinch-zoom gesture in Google Chrome using this Chrome flag:
Note: It will disable the whole touch screen only in the Chrome browser but on your system the touch screen will still work.
This flag was available in the old versions(less then 50) but now it's not:
This is just a workaround, but I found this extension which just disables page zooming (until enabled for a specific tab by clicking its icon): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/zoom-block/jmomepcgehgfoimapeoinphcloinjfpb
Not as good as a "root fix", but it's good enough for me!
