HC Deb 19 December 1963 vol 686 cc262-3W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Labour how many persons are employed at the Remploy Factory, Pogmoor, Barnsley; how these figures compare with the past four years; and whether he will extend the works with a view to taking more of the disabled workers of Barnsley and district who are unable to find satisfactory employment.

Mr. Whitelaw

The number of severely disabled employees at the Barnsley Remploy factory at present and at the corresponding time in the past four years are as follows:

1963 72
1962 76
1961 76
1960 76
1959 72

There are no plans for extending the Remploy factory at present, but local authority plans will provide more employment for severely disabled people in the area.
