§ Mr. McMaster
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what is the percentage of disabled people directly employed by her Department, and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. Forth
The DFE's Department annual disabled person's return for 1994 shows that the number of registered disabled people employed by the Department is 60, representing 2.9 per cent. of the total.
This figure refers only to staff who are registered disabled. There are disabled people employed by the Department who chose not to register, and therefore do not appear in the figures.
