asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Prime Minister on 25 March 2002 (HC Deb, col. 618–9W) reaffirming the Government's commitment to Rehabilitation International's Charter for the Third Millennium, presented to him on 5 July 2000, what developments there have been since then in regard to the charter's call for a United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People; and what role the Government have played in giving it effect.
