HC Deb 01 July 1963 vol 680 cc3-4W
55. Mr. Willis

asked the Minister of Labour if he will undertake a survey of registered unemployed disabled men in Scotland in order to ascertain the full extent to which the present provisions of Remploy factories should be extended.

Mr. Hare

My local offices already make a monthly return of unemployed disabled people who are eligible for Remploy and other sheltered workshops.

58. Mr. Millan

asked the Minister of Labour what steps he is taking to provide work for those who are registered disabled unemployed but who are not severely enough disabled to be eligible for employment with Remploy.

Mr. Hare

My disablement resettlement officers endeavour to find employment in ordinary industry for registered disabled persons who are not in need of sheltered employment. The Disabled Persons (Employment) Act, 1944, places an obligation on employers to employ a quota of such persons.
