To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what discussions his Department has had with (a) disability charities and other third sector groups, (b) disabled people, their families and informal carers and (c) organisations led by disabled people on his Department's planned white paper on improving support for disabled people and people with health conditions.
The department regularly engages with disability charities and organisations, as well as disabled people and their families and carers, at both Ministerial and official level.
