Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 10 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what conclusions his Department has reached in fulfilment of its duty under section 3.111 of the statutory code of practice of the disability equality duty. (240988)

DCMS published its first annual report on progress on disability equality in March 2008, available on the DCMS website

http://www.culture.gov.uk/reference_library/publications/5082.aspx

The report describes progress on each item in our action plan and further action, for example, the establishment of a Disability Reference Group, plans to improve our data collection on participation by disabled people in our sectors and work to improve the diversity of the boards of our public bodies.

We will publish our second progress report early in 2009.
