To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions pursuant to the answer of 24 June 2009, Official Report, columns 1027-28W, on the Disability Discrimination Act 2005, if she will publish reviews of contractors' compliance with disability discrimination legislation. (283356)

The Department has no plans to publish reviews of contractors' compliance with disability discrimination legislation.

All DWP welfare to work contracts include detailed terms and conditions relevant to the Disability Discrimination Act 2005. DWP contract management processes are designed to ensure that contractors comply with all statutory and legislative requirements. In addition, external inspection and validation will ensure the quality and accuracy of their activities.
