§ Dr. Stross
asked the Minister of Labour by what means men and women are selected for employment in Remploy factories; and whether specific instructions are given to medical officers examining candidates so as to enable 40W them to assess the suitability of any particular person.
§ Mr. Isaacs
Severely disabled persons classified as requiring sheltered employment are submitted by the employment exchange to the manager of the factory. They are interviewed by a panel consisting of the factory manager and a medical officer, with the disablement resettlement officer of my Department in attendance. The medical officer is expected to assess the suitability of candidates in the light of his knowledge of the conditions of employment in the factory.
