To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has made an assessment of which policy areas will be considered in his report on progress towards disability equality within the Department’s policy sector which is due to be published in December 2008. (91971)

We currently anticipate that our first report will cover the following areas:

Protecting the Public

Crime Reduction and Policing

Victims of Crime

The Criminal Justice System

Passports and Immigration

Managing offenders

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what information gathering and other actions his Department and other relevant bodies are taking to inform the public on the production of the report on progress towards disability equality within his Department’s policy sector. (91972)

All relevant areas of Home Office policy will be considered in the report on progress. We will also seek an assessment of progress from Home Office Executive agencies and non-departmental public bodies. We are considering what specific information needs to be collected to be able to publish our report on 1 December 2008.
