§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what has been the result of research carried out by his Department on the attitude of disabled employees and prospective employees upon the introduction of employers' contributions under the access to work proposals.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
Disabled people's organisations have generally welcomed the new forms of help to overcome barriers to work which the employer contributions under access to work will make possible. We are taking account of the views expressed by their organisations about the employer contribution in making our final decisions about the scheme.
