§ Mr. Kirkwood
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make it his policy to introduce legislation in the next parliamentary Session to improve the rights of people with disabilities.
§ Mr. Scott
On 15 July, I issued a consultation document inviting comments by 7 October on a variety of proposals in five areas to combat discrimination against disabled people. A number of the proposals being considered would require legislation. Final decisions on the way forward will be taken in the light of the responses to the consultation document.
