HC Deb 10 December 1992 vol 215 cc753-4W
Mr. Elletson

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many(a) physically disabled and (b) sensorily disabled people are employed in his Department; and what percentage they are of the total work force.

Mr. Curry

Counting part-time staff as half units, MAFF and its agencies employ 138.5 registered disabled staff. These figures represent 1.4 per cent. of total staff but do not take into account staff with disabilities who have chosen not to register. Information to distinguish between staff with physical or sensory disabilities is not held centrally.
