The request was successful.

From: Andrew Hey

Dear Parliamentary Service,

I understand that the Service is not covered under the OIA. However, I hope you will be able to provide the following information, with due respect to confidentiality of any individuals concerned:

1) What data does Parliamentary Services collect in regard to disabilities that Members of Parliament may possess?
2) Statistically, how many MPs in the current (2017-) and previous parliament (2014-2017) have identified as possessing a disability and/or accessed practical support from parliamentary services in relation to a disability.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Hey
