HC Deb 04 July 1978 vol 953 c160W
Mr. David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the current level of unemployment among registered disabled workers; and how it compares with the general level of unemployment.

Mr. John Grant

I am advised by the Manpower Services Commission that on 11th May 1978, the latest date for which national figures are available, 69,577 registered disabled people or 14.1 per cent. of the total register were unemployed compared with the general level of unemployment of 5.7 per cent.
