§ Mr. Bishop
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what were the numbers of unemployed in Newark and district and the percentage of the registered labour force for males and females, respectively, and the total for August, 1972, and each of the previous five years.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
A recent survey has indicated that between 30 and 40 severely disabled people in Reading are likely to be suitable and available for sheltered employment. My Department will shortly be discussing with the two local authorities concerned the possibility of their providing a sheltered workshop of this size.
