Disability Act to take effect at year end


05/08/2005 - 12:57:22

All government departments and public bodies will be obliged to make their services accessible to disabled people from the end of this year.

The move was announced today by Junior Minister Frank Fahey, who said he had signed an order paving the way for the introduction of the provisions on December 31.

The measures were included in the Disability Act passed earlier this year.

Mr Fahey said the order would also require government departments and public bodies to take action to increase the proportion of disabled people they employ to 3% of their total workforce.
