UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions pursuant to the answer of 18 March 2009, Official Report, columns 1209-10W, on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, whether he expects the necessary parliamentary processes required to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to be completed by the end of June; and what his latest estimate is of the date by which the Convention will be ratified by the UK. (277346)

The parliamentary processes are now complete. As I said in my written statement to the House on 13 May 2009, we aim to ratify the convention on 8 June.
