§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will give a general direction to those nationalised industries for which he is sponsoring Minister that they should meet the quota of 3 per cent. employment of disabled people since, as revealed by the Department of Employment Gazette, they do not currently do so.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
No. I consider that the nationalised industries, for which my right hon. Friend is the sponsoring Minister, are doing their best to fulfil their obligations. However, I will continue to keep the situation under scrutiny.
