To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills if he will publish a copy of his Department’s website accessibility plan. (257219)

DIUS is committed to making its website as accessible to as many people as possible and strives to meet W3C WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to Double A standard. We currently publish a Website Accessibility statement on our interim corporate website at:

http://www.dius.gov.uk/accessibility/

The full DIUS site will be launched in March and this will also aim to meet W3C WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to Double A standard. In addition we are in the process of developing a full website accessibility plan which we will publish on our new website as soon possible after launch of the new site and no later than the end of May 2009.
