In October 2015, the Northern Ireland Office (NIO) published a consultation paper on its new Disability Action Plan. The consultation invited comments on the contents and commitments contained in the draft Disability Action Plan. The consultation closed on 18 December 2015.
After detailed consideration of all the views and comments received, a number of amendments were made to the draft Disability Action Plan. A revised Plan was considered by the NIO Board and subsequently approved by Ministers in March 2016.
