To ask the Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions, what the timeframe is for the publication of the Government's response to the report, Concluding observations on the initial report of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, published by the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities report published in October 2017.
