§ Mr. Ovenden
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will undertake a publicity campaign to make employers aware of the grants available to adapt facilities to assist in the employment of disabled people; and if he will concentrate this campaign on areas such as Medway and Gravesend where no applications for grant were made in the past year.
§ Mr. John Grant
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that a campaign to publicise the grants available to adapt employers' facilities to assist in the employment of disabled people is proposed for the near future. The campaign will be limited initially to four or five selected districts to enable the effect to be monitored. One or two of these will be areas where no applications for grants were made in the past year.
