HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 c21W
Mr. Butterfill

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many registered blind people have been employed in his Department for each of the last four years.

None has been recruited, but four blind employees taken on prior to 1981 remain with the Department. A number of other members of staff suffer from serious sight impairment but are not registered as blind.
