§ 28. Mr. Thurnham
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans she has for encouraging more employers to provide opportunities for people with disabilities.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
The Department will continue to encourage employers to provide opportunities for disabled people through a programme of education and persuasion backed by practical help. From 1 June 1993 employers using the disability symbol will be required to make five specific commitments central to good practice in the employment of people with disabilities. We will continue to develop and improve the schemes and services which help to meet the employment and training needs of people with disabilities.
