§ 23. Major BARKER
asked the Minister of Labour the number of municipalities and other public bodies which have not yet taken up the national scheme for the employment of disabled men?
§ Mr. WARDLE
The number of municipal and other public bodies which have given undertakings to employ disabled men in terms of the national scheme is 172. I cannot say how many of these bodies there are which have not given the undertaking, but I understand that many of them have the matter still under consideration, and I trust that in the near future the position will improve substantially.
