Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy will be aware my 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.

Following significant consultation and consideration the Plan was agreed by the National Disability Strategy Implementation Group at their meeting of 20 June 2013. It is my intention to bring the Plan to Government imminently. The Plan will then be published to the websites of all relevant Government Departments including my own and that of the National Disability Authority. Accessible versions of the Implementation Plan and hard copies of the document will be made available on request.
