Prefecture postpones submission of disabilities discrimination draft to assembly

September 4, 2015


The Aichi prefecture office in central Japan announced on September 3 that it postponed submission of a disability discrimination ordinance draft to a regular meeting in the prefecture assembly scheduled for September 17, because the preliminary explanation to disabilities groups was insufficient about the draft of the ordinance.

The prefecture had finished making the draft including requirement for personnel working with a person with disability for the first time in Japan, and had explained to the peopled concerned with the assembly beforehand. 

About 30 disabilities groups were shortly informed by the prefecture  on August 31 about the legal draft submission without detailed explanations. They insisted to include their opinion or idea in the draft.
