Letter of correction from Maria Miller:

Errors have been identified in the response given to the hon. Member for Battersea (Jane Ellison) and the hon. Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy) on 26 July 2010. The words ‘The Government Equalities Office is’ in the second paragraph should be replaced with ‘We are’.

The answer given was as follows: (10311)

[holding answer 22 July 2010]: I have been asked to reply.

The Government are committed to ensuring disabled people are given the support they need to get a job and remain in employment.

The coalition agreement made a commitment on Access to Work. The Government Equalities Office is developing plans for delivering this commitment and further details will be announced in due course.

The correct answer should have been:
