A new disability discrimination code which includes the provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act that come into force on December 4 this year has been laid before parliament.
Once it has parliamentary approval, the Disability Rights Commission aims to publish and issue the new code this summer. It will replace the existing code.
The provisions that come into force in December relate to new duties for public authorities, landlords and private members clubs.
