HC Deb 16 July 1979 vol 970 cc412-3W
Mr. Foster

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what percentage of disabled people registered with his Department are employed in firms which employ 20 or less people.

Mr. Jim Lester,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 12 July 1979; Vol. 970, c. 244], gave the following answer

I am advised by the Manpower Services Commission that it is not possible to provide this information. Only organisations which employ 20 or more workers are subject to the quota provisions of the Disabled Persons (Employment) Act 1944, and are requested to furnish information relating to their employment of registered disabled people.
