§ Mr. McAllion
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what proportion and number of non-industrial civil servants in the Department and agencies for which he has responsibility are registered disabled and disabled as defined by the Cabinet Office document, "Focus on Ability".
Mr. Robert G. Hughes
The number of registered disabled people in the Departments and agencies for which my right hon. Friend is responsible and other areas which fall to the Cabinet Office vote is as follows:
Number of RDP Total staff in department Percentage of RDP Cabinet office OPSS (including CCTA) 18 1,316.5 1.4 CCC 3 397.5 0.75 CSC — 253 — OHS 0.5 113 0.4 RAS 3 137.5 2.2 COI 4 502 0.8 HMSO 40.5 2,002 2
The figures represent full time equivalent posts; part time staff are shown as 0.5.
Figures for the number of all disabled people employed within the Departments and agencies as a whole are not available. However, 51 staff in the central Cabinet Office/OPSS and CCTA have a disability which they consider might affect them at work.
