star this property answer text <p>The Government’s vision for disabled children and young people is the same as for everyone else – to enable them to fulfil their potential, achieve well in education, and to live happy and fulfilled lives. To support this aim, the Disability and Society Inter-Ministerial Group (IMG) was set up last year to drive forward action across Government to tackle the barriers disabled people face to realising their full participation in society. Whilst disability policy is the responsibility of all Departments, by working together we can improve disabled people’s participation, for which we are jointly responsible.</p><p>We are also committed to working with a wide and diverse range of people and organisations to shape and improve government's approach. We announced our new Regional Stakeholder Network in December 2018, which will bring the views of disabled people, local disability organisations, disabled people led organisations, and organisations that represent disabled people closer to government.</p><p>The UK Government has some of the strongest equalities legislation in the world and we will continue to ensure that these rights are protected, just as we will continue to develop policies to tackle the barriers faced by disabled people.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) holds a national dose register of classified radiation workers known as the Central Index of Dosage Information (CIDI). This register is maintained in accordance with the Council Directive 2013/59 Euratom, replacing earlier directives, including 96/29/Euratom. The definition of a classified radiation worker is a person who works with ionising radiation and who could be exposed to higher levels of ionising radiation during normal work and also under certain accident conditions. It is designated Approved Dosimetry Services (ADS’s), approved by HSE, that submit this radiation exposure information annually to CIDI.</p><p>The CIDI is only accessible by three authorised HSE personnel. Only ADS’s may request information for medical surveillance purposes (e.g. if a classified worker moves employer) and these requests are considered on a case-by-case basis. Only authorised persons within an ADS are able to submit annual returns to the CIDI database via a secure password protected portal and cannot access data held within the database itself.</p><p>Atomic Nuclear weapons testing by the UK took place before the establishment of CIDI. Therefore, CIDI does not contain any radiation exposure data for service personnel who may have been exposed to ionising radiation as a result of nuclear testing at the time.</p>
