HC Deb 23 March 1949 vol 463 cc39-40W
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 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.
