(a) how the Secretary of State has interpreted “halving the disability employment gap”;
(b) the factors that the Secretary of State has used to determine whether progress has been sufficient, including the extent and speed at which progress has been made; and
(c) if progress under subsection (1) has been insufficient, what remedial steps will be taken.
(3) The report under subsection (1) must contain data on-
(a) the overall rate of employment, and
