Number 10 has issued a response to the petition to make government sites more accessible (or at least comply with WCAG 1.0). In typical political fashion it’s vague, skips the point and talks about stuff that has already failed as if it’s working. It’s a bit like Prime Minister’s question time then.
I’d like to see a more solid answer than this, with a goal of a more transparent process for the commissioning of government web sites. At the very least using PAS 78 needs to become a de-facto part of the process for all government sites.
