§ Mr. O'Halloran
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many disabled persons were registered as unemployed in the Greater London area at the latest available date; how many are in employment; and how these figures compare with the same period in 1972.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
On 10th April 1973 there were 71,781 registered disabled people in the Greater London area of whom 5,730 were known to be unemployed. The comparable figures for April 1972 were 77,769 and 6,589 respectively. It is not however possible to state how many registered disabled people were actually in employment at these dates.
