I have regular discussions with ministerial colleagues at the Department for Work and Pensions on a range of issues. The Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Committee (OPLC), the relevant Cabinet committee, has regular discussions about the Paralympic legacy. Both the Minister for Disabled People and I are members of that committee. The Minister for Disabled People co-chairs (with the Deputy Mayor of London) the Paralympic Legacy Advisory Group which has been established to advise Government and the Mayor of London on Paralympic legacy. The Group's membership comprises representatives from disabled people's user-led organisations, leading disability charities, Paralympians, broadcasters and business. The Minister for Disabled People reports regularly to the OPLC on the work of the PLAG.
