This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. The exemptions are listed below.


“Disproportionate Burden”

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal, likely to be in 3 years time.
