Disability and Discrimination Bill reforms to improve position in workplace of those living with HIV

It seems that one of the changes proposed in the Queen's Speech yesterday will have a direct and positive impact on the lives in the workplace of those living with HIV. Reforms to the Disability and Discrimination Bill will extend the definition of disability to cover those with progressive diseases such as HIV, cancer and multiple sclerosis.

There are many other items of legislation announced yesterday to which I take strong exception, notably those relating to 'terrorism' (however tangentially), but these reforms at least do seem to be a step in the right direction.
