HC Deb 02 July 1997 vol 297 cc213-4W
21. Mr. Burstow

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what consultations he(a) has had and (b) plans to have with organisations of and representing disabled people in relation to the publication of Government information in accessible formats. [4947]

Mr. Kilfoyle

The accessibility of government information for disabled people will be included in the planned consultation with the general public and with disability organisations on what people want from public services.

We welcome the views of all interested groups and individuals on the proposals to be set out in the Freedom of Information White Paper and subsequent draft Bill. The views and proposals of those representing the particular interests and needs of disabled people will, of course, be considered very carefully.
