Question to the Department for Work and Pensions:
To ask Her Majesty's Government when they will publish the National Disability Strategy 2022 update.
The Minister for Disabled People provided an update on the National Disability Strategy to the House through a Written Ministerial Statement on Monday 13th June.
In January 2022, the High Court declared it was unlawful because the UK Disability Survey, which informed it, was held to be a voluntary consultation that failed to comply with the legal requirements on public consultations. We are disappointed by and strongly disagree with this finding, and the Secretary of State has sought permission to appeal the High Court's declaration. We remain committed to improving opportunities and outcomes for disabled people as we await the outcome of the appeal.
