To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what steps have been taken towards making Government services accessible to the disabled. 
§ Mr. Alexander
2003 is the European Year for Disabled People and the Government are committed to ensuring the delivery of accessible electronic information and electronic services to disabled users.
The Government first issued "Guidelines for UK government websites", requiring all new or re-designed web-based services to be made accessible to the disabled, in December 1999. It is now a condition of registering a.gov.uk domain name that websites comply with these guidelines.
