HC Deb 23 July 1962 vol 663 c111W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Minister of Labour what provision is made to reserve light jobs in industry for those who are disabled.

Mr. Whitelaw

Under the Disabled Persons (Employment) Act, 1944, all employers having 20 or more workers are required to employ a quota of registered disabled persons equal to 3 per cent. of their total number of employees. This requirement helps to secure suitable jobs of all kinds for the disabled. In addition, the two occupations of car-park attendant and passenger electric lift attendant are specially reserved for registered disabled persons.
