Departmental Disabled Staff

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs 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. (240984)

A substantial programme of work is being implemented following the review carried out by the former Disability Rights Commission (2007). The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Annual Diversity Report 2007 (published March 2008) summarised our achievements for disability equality and the targets set for 2008. The next annual report of progress is due for publication March 2009 and we will share the impact of particular policies/services on our disabled customers (including staff) and how we used this to inform and improve outcome for this equality target group.
