prove employment prospects for these people.

Mr. Hare

129 registered disabled persons were unemployed on 16th October, of whom 35 had been unemployed for over two years and 16 for between one and two years. It is estimated that about 500 new jobs are in prospect in the district. This will help my officers in their efforts to find employment for disabled people.
