Mrs. McGuire: Local authorities are already subject to duties under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 not to discriminate against disabled people in employment or the provision of services, and amendments made by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 will ensure that all the activities of public authorities are covered by the 1995 Act. These duties include the need to make positive adjustments to ensure disabled people are not less favourably treated.
The 2005 Act also places new duties on public authorities requiring them actively to promote equality of opportunity for disabled people. By December 2006, local authorities and other listed public authorities will be required to publish Disability Equality Schemes setting out how they will implement this new duty. It will be mandatory to involve disabled people in determining an authority's priorities and action plan, but the Government do not believe it is right to specify in legislation the particular actions to be taken by authorities in order to promote equality of opportunity. This is because the implementation of the duty will maximise the inclusion of disabled people only if it fully reflects local circumstances and the priorities of local disabled people.
The Disability Rights Commission will issue guidance to assist authorities in developing action plans that genuinely address the needs of disabled people and will oversee and enforce the implementation of the duty to ensure authorities are taking the actions required of them.
