Part V of the Disability Act 2005 provides that public bodies are required to collect and report data on the number and proportion of employees with disabilities. My Department collects this information from the public bodies under its aegis and submits an annual report to the National Disability Authority.

However, Board members are not employees and, therefore, such information is neither collected nor available within my Department.
