Access to Work Scheme

Volume 714: debated on Thursday 12 November 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have completed their review of their guidance to the access to work scheme for disabled councillors. [HL5677]

We regularly review access to work guidance and update it in response to customer feedback in order to provide a continually improving service to those with disabilities and health problems.

The review of guidance in relation to disabled councillors was completed earlier in the year. I am looking further at this matter, however, and will write to the noble Lady shortly giving her details of the outcome of this work.
