§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement outlining the current training provision given to disability employment advisers concerning the interpretation of reasonable cause for the dismissal of registered disabled people from employment.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
The question whether there is reasonable cause for a particular dismissal is a matter of fact for the court to decide in the light of all the circumstances of the case. Disability employment advisers do not advise on such matters and, therefore, receive no specific training on the interpretation of this provision.
