The government’s response to the consultation on guidance about the definition of disability was published on 10 February 2011.

The draft statutory guidance, published alongside the response, will be laid in parliament for 40 days.

The Equality Act 2010 includes the legal definition of a disabled person who is protected from discrimination. This definition is slightly different from the definition used in the Disability Discrimination Act. The new guidance reflects these changes and will help people to understand how the definition works.
