HC Deb 04 July 1950 vol 477 c14W
34. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Labour what provision he has made for the employment of manual and clerical workers who suffer from epilepsy but are otherwise capable of taking their normal part in industry.

Mr. Isaacs

Sufferers from epilepsy, like other handicapped persons, can readily get advice and guidance about their employment difficulties from disablement resettlement officers who have been able by special approach to employers to place a considerable number in suitable employment. To assist in this work explanatory notes about epilepsy have been issued by my Department to employers for their information and guidance. A number of the more severe cases have been placed in employment under sheltered conditions in Remploy factories.
