HC Deb 18 July 1988 vol 137 c444W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans he has for creating equality of opportunity for disabled people; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Viggers

It is one of the aims of this Government that disabled people should be given equality of opportunity in all fields. In the employment field, training courses, grants schemes and a sheltered placement scheme are operated, and local job markets provide a special placement service for the disabled. Advice and encouragement are given to all outside agencies which may also contribute towards providing equality of opportunity for disabled people.
