Mr. R. Duckworth
asked the Minister of Labour whether any decisions have been arrived at in regard to production by severely disabled persons in sheltered workshops of certain classes of articles in regular demand for Government and other public purposes; and whether any steps have been taken to secure the co-operation of sheltered workshops and voluntary undertakings employing disabled persons.
§ Mr. E. Bevin
This matter is being examined in connection with preparation of plans to take effect as soon as the relevant provisions of the Disabled Persons (Employment) Act are brought into operation. There will be the fullest co-operation with voluntary bodies employing disabled persons under sheltered conditions.
