Since becoming Minister for Disabled People at the start of this Parliament I have received 636 letters for ministerial reply. I have replied personally to 354 of these that were about matters within my responsibilities. The others were passed to ministerial colleagues. I have also replied to a further 507 letters that were addressed to ministerial colleagues.
