HC Deb 28 November 1966 vol 737 c15W
72. Mr. Braine

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will carry out a survey to discover the number of registered disabled persons, whether employed part-time or full-time, in respect of whom the Selective Employment Tax is payable.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

No; a reasonably close estimate is that the Selective Employment Tax is payable in respect of 600,000 registered disabled persons of whom about one-third are employed in the service and construction industries and therefore do not qualify for the refund of premium.
