HC Deb 25 February 1952 vol 496 cc88-9W
100. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Supply what percentages of disabled persons are at present employed in the Royal Ordnance factories at Swynnerton and Radway Green; and why men suffering from pneumoconiosis are being rejected for employment at the Radway Green factory.

Mr. Sandys

Approximately 13 per cent. at Swynnerton and 14 per cent. at Radway Green. Men are rejected for employment only when their disabilities make them unfit for the particular jobs available.
