Sight Impaired

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what guidelines her Department follows in respect of making printed materials and forms accessible to people suffering red/green colour blindness. (245711)

The Department follows COI Informability advice that the use of red and green together as text/background should be avoided. This includes the use of tints and solid blocks of colour.

As an additional accessibility measure, the Department's website provides Word format files for all new publications and signposts the availability of alternative formats on request.
