To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) what is his Department's policy on which information produced by his Department is published in alternative media to standard print such as braille, tape or large print;(2) what arrangements his Department makes to ensure that blind and partially sighted people have access to information produced by his Department where it has not been published in alternative media such as braille, large print or tape.

My Department's usual policy is to deal individually with requests for information in forms other than standard print. Where however the information is specifically relevant to numbers of blind or partially sighted people, arrangements are made for it to be available through tape library services.
