Scottish public bodies could face legal action for failing disabled people

One in six public sector organisations in Scotland could be facing legal action after they failed to meet a new duty which came into force last year to promote equality for disabled people.

A survey by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) found that one local authority, three Scottish colleges, three national arts and cultural organisations and a further 38 public bodies have still failed to produce a Disability Equality Scheme, almost three months after the 4th December 2006 deadline.
