HC Deb 01 February 1995 vol 253 c747W
Mr. McAllion

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what proportion and number of non-industrial civil servants in the departments and agencies for which he has responsibility are registered disabled and disabled as defined by the Cabinet Office document, "Focus on Ability."

Mr. Redwood

There are 48 registered disabled people amongst the non-industrial staff in the Welsh Office, representing 2 per cent. of the total. Figures for the number and proportion of all disabled people employed in the Welsh Office are not available. A survey of staff using self-categorisation of disability suggested that there were a further 53 staff with a disability who have chosen not to register.
