HL Deb 05 February 2004 vol 656 c119WA
Lord Rotherwick

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the draft Disability Discrimination Bill will incorporate the recommendations of the Dyslexia Association on the correct fonts, spacing and colour of paper to be used. [HL1023]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Work and Pensions (Baroness Hollis of Heigham)

The draft Disability Discrimination Bill has been published in a wide range of accessible formats, including audio tape, Braille, British Sign Language video and an easy read booket for people with learning disabilities. The easy read booklet is designed to assist people with a wide range of learning disabilities. It reflects guidance from a number of sources, such as the Disability Rights Commission, and is largely in line with the Dyslexia Association's dyslexia style guide guidance on font size, colour of paper and spacing.
