Parts of the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 come into force

Implementation date: 5 December 2005

Sections amending the definition of disability so that mental illness need no longer be clinically well recognised to be a mental impairment, and sections deeming people with cancer, HIV infection or multiple sclerosis to be disabled, whether or not the condition has an effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities come into force. The Act and the Order bringing these sections into force can be viewed on the OPSI website.
