HC Deb 06 June 1996 vol 278 c514W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many registered disabled people are employed by his Department; and what percentage this is of the total figure. [30770]

Mrs. Angela Knight

As at 1 April 1996, the Treasury employed three registered disabled people, which represents 0.27 per cent. of the Treasury staff. The Treasury also employs a number of disabled people who have chosen not to register, or who became disabled after the withdrawal of the registration scheme under the provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
