HC Deb 25 January 1954 vol 522 c200W
64. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Minister of Supply if he will initiate discussions with Remploy Limited on planning long-term Government contracts with a view to allowing sheltered employment to be provided for severely disabled workers on a larger and more economical scale.

Mr. Sandys

We endeavour at all times to provide Remploy and similar organisations with work suited to their capacity. The possibility of placing more extended contracts so as to provide assured long-term employment for disabled industrial workers is at present being examined jointly by the Departments concerned.
