Thanks Rhodri,


As you’ll appreciate, we’re delighted with the Minister’s announcement of a Framework for Action on Independent Living. The Minister will be making a public announcement about the Framework at our AGM/seminar tomorrow and we will shortly be meeting with Carys Evans, the civil servant who has been delegated lead responsibility for developing it.


As well as being a huge step forward for disabled people in Wales, we regard it as a success story for the Petitions Committee. I very much doubt whether we would be in this position without the petition process.
