Departmental Disabled Staff

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 10 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what conclusions her Department has reached in fulfilment of its duty under section 3.111 of the statutory code of practice of the disability equality duty. (240989)

The conclusions the Department has reached to fulfil its disability equality duty are outlined in our Disability Equality Scheme Annual Report published in February 2008, which is available on our website at:

www.communities.gov.uk/publications/corporate/disabilityequalityscheme2008

An update on progress on these actions will be published, as explained in that document, as part of our Department’s Single Annual Report on Equalities. We intend to do this in spring 2009.

The Secretary of State’s report on Disability, published on 1 December, also reports on progress made towards disability equality by public authorities in our policy sectors. The report is available on our website at:
