Mr. Jim Callaghan
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many prosecutions have been brought over the period 1979 to 1981 for offences relating to employers' failure to take into designated employment their statutory quota of disabled persons.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
None. Only two occupations—passenger electric lift attendant and car park attendant are designated employment under the Disabled Persons Employment Act. Entry into these is reserved exclusively for registered disabled people unless no suitable registered disabled person is available.
