Dear Equality and Human Rights Commission,

The EHRC announced :
"The DWP outlined the steps being taken to address the problems identified. However, the Commission has concluded that further action is necessary, given the seriousness of the issues. It is therefore drawing up a legally-binding agreement with the DWP to commit them to an action plan to meet the needs of customers with mental health impairments and learning disabilities."

RFI1: Please disclose the action plan agreed with the DWP.

RFI2: If the action plan has yet to be completed, please disclose the target date for its completion.

Yours faithfully,

John Slater

Information Governance team, Equality and Human Rights Commission
