§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many disabled people are involved in his Department in planning for the special educational needs of disabled people; and whether his Department has a policy involving disabled people in such planning.
§ Sir Keith Joseph
The division concerned with the special educational needs of disabled persons has a blind member. The Department's policy is not to restrict 115W disabled staff to planning in this area, but to use their skills alongside able-bodied colleagues elsewhere in the Department.
