Written answers (Question to Justice)

The Department has been engaged in a wide ranging consultation process with Government Departments and with the disability stakeholders group in the preparation of the National Disability Strategy Implementation Plan (NDSIP). The aim of the NDSIP is the engagement with the Disability sector and to build on the traditional problem solving and constructive approach of the community and voluntary sector to make progress towards the common interests. The current position is that the draft Implementation Plan has been presented to the Disability Stakeholders' Group for consideration at their meeting on 14th May. Following consideration of the Plan by the Disability Stakeholders' Group it may be possible to advance rapidly to publication of the Plan.
