HC Deb 21 June 1994 vol 245 c85W
Mr. Caborn

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on his Department's policy regarding the eligibility of disabled people to become members of industrial tribunals; what records are kept of the number of disabled people who are members of industrial tribunals; and if he will make a statement.

Miss Widdecombe

We welcome applications for appointment from all sections of the community, including disabled people, and the information published by the Department on the appointment arrangements makes this clear. Records are not kept of the numbers of lay members who are disabled.
