§ Caroline Flint
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what proportion of people employed by each local authority in Yorkshire and Humberside are registered disabled. 
§ Ms Hodge
The information requested is not available because there is no longer any requirement for disabled people to register as disabled. Those parts of the Disabled Persons (Employment) Act 1944 which were about registration were repealed when the employment provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 came into force on 2 December 1996.
