§ Mr. Hannam
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what discussions he has had with organisations representing disabled people regarding the introduction of rehabilitation leave to encourage employers to retain workers who become disabled.
[holding answer 11 December 1990]: The Royal National Institute for the Blind told my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State of a proposal that they are developing for rehabilitation leave. His response was that we should like to see employers taking more positive action on addressing the needs of any people who become disabled while in employment and that the employment service can help employers to do this.
